Profile Picture

As her friends (including her boy friend) abandon her at Brooklyn for the whole summer, Adora Benet is forced by her parents to get a job. Working for a tennis and squash club AND volunteering at a veterinarian office, Dora meets new friends. Stella, from the tennis club, a cool, older, friend, inspires Dora by her sheer beauty. Stella takes Dora to her singing gig and Dora gets offended. Meanwhile at her vet job she donates a cat without permission; but even better, she works with a hot doctor who has a little surprise up his sleeve.
