G cheeseburgers Swapping her stilettos for flip flops Getting a job that doesn’t reuire dancing winking or mall appearances And falling for the cutest realest boy she’s ever met But how will she now if he feels the same way Because for once in her life someone is going to have to like her for who she really is.
