Freckle-faced and knock-kneed, Angela is tormented on a regular basis by her arch-nemesis, NANNETTE MANOIR. Nannette is pretty, rich and the teacher's pet. She also has a nasty disposition and especially loves goading Angela. Angela's allies include the cinnamon swirl-loving GINA LASH (resident brain of their school), the not-too-swift JOHNNY ABATTI (who is okay, even if he is a boy) and the pasty, inhaler-dependent GORDY RHINEHART. Together, armed with wit and determination, the friends combat the daily trials and tribulations of childhood.
