worse - especially when new boy Cass takes a sudden interest in her.
It's going to take more than a trip to The Body Beautiful to sort Sasha out.
Work experience? No thanks. What Sasha really needs is a guardian angel ...

The POWER PACKER
Are you a power packer? Read more below!
You're a Matilda Peppercorn kind of person! Like Tilly, you're enthusiastic, outgoing,
naturally optimistic and a real motivator.
You love a challenge - like a good old competition in whatever you're passionate about,
or standing up for your friends!
And those friends? They love how driven you are and how you use your gift of the gab
and superb skills to launch fearlessly into any adventure.
You're a fun-loving, outgoing kinda person, with a positive take on life even when life isn't all that easy. You love to talk, joke, and inspire others with your passion and energy. Other people are pretty motivated by you and your natural optimism.
You're great at seeing the big picture, and how all the moving parts of that picture fit together. Once you've seen it, you're like a lightning bolt, firing up everyone around you to join you on a mission to get it done! You make quick decisions and just get on with the job.
You love learning about things until you're expert. The best. Ambitious, driven and competitive. You'll do anything for your buddies and love encouraging them to be their best, too. You can be a great teacher and mentor for others by combining your high achievements and expertise with your ability to talk to others.
You can also learn from others, though, don't forget - and listening is as important as talking! And when you listen to others you also take the time to make important decisions and set realistic deadlines.
You'll love to learn from those you consider to be really expert - and they'll love teaching you because you soak up information and act on it quickly. If you surround yourself with great teachers and friends who'll get you to slow down and think of the details, you'll be an unstoppable powerhouse!
