Meine Lebensziele: 1. Einen It-Girl-würdigen Auftritt bei der Hochzeit meines Vaters hinlegen (bestenfalls ohne peinliche Aussetzer). 2. Möglichst gelassen und cool bleiben, obwohl Dad die berühmteste Schauspielerin EVER heiratet und es überall von Promis UND Paparazzi wimmeln wird (siehe Punkt 1). 3. Bloß nicht aus Versehen auf den Schleier der Braut treten (siehe Punkt 1). 4. Auf keine Fall im hohen Bogen in der Hochzeitstorte landen (siehe Punkt 1). 5. Die entzückendste Brautjungfer aller Zeiten werden, um Connors Herz (zufällig der süßeste Typ meiner Schule) zum Hüpfen zu bringen. LG, Anna xxx
