There are some things in your life you can't change -- and others you can.
Amanda Woods is discovering that the person other people think she is and the person she really is are not the same. She doesn't want to be like her demanding mother or her perfect older sister, and, even though she feels close to her father, she doesn't want to be like him, either. But she has to start somewhere. So she changes her name from bland Amanda Woods to Amanda K. Woods -- someone who is proud and strong and sure of herself. And that change sets off a chain reaction, leaving Amanda -- and the whole Woods family -- entirely different.
