those transitional years between childhood and adolescence
-- the days when you were playing on the swing set one
minute, and daydreaming about the fifth-grade love of
your life the next? This is the life of Teena Keene --
almost 11 years old, a fifth grader and a good student.
She's an avid inline skater and not quite ready to give
up her dolls. But makeup and boys, particularly Gordo
Brandt, are beginning to vie for her attention. Teena
teeters between child and budding teen, and enjoys being
a little of both.
