Plot

There are problems that come simply from being a girl her age... Entering highschool, dealing with friends and peers, falling in love... And other problems that come from this new position, such as her new bodyguard Fahrenheit, the pressure from her aunt to face the title of first lady, and all of the unwinding mysteries that all of the people around her are wrapped in.
