How to be Cool

by Johanna Edwards

Kylie Chase teaches people "how to be cool." Amazing, isn't it? This former fat girl lost weight and now helps people with their images. Unfortunately, her own self image still isn't great.

When her apartment burns down and she has to move back in with the 'rents, Kylie's self esteem plunges. At the same time, some ultra hip journalist wants to write a story about the oh-so-cool woman who teaches people how to be cool. Timing is everything for Kylie! And her 10 year reunion is coming up for high school. Can she regroup quickly enough to fool her former classmates and that writer? Or will they find out that she's not cool?

This was kind of dumb. And the story takes place in Chicago, but the references are scant and don't really ring true.
