Olivia's mom makes her a red soccer shirt (even though she won't match her teammates) because she doesn't like green. *rolls eyes* I know Olivia is supposed to be charming and endearing, but I just don't like her.

Olivia is dramatic, bossy, and always tries to steal the show. I appreciate that her brother flew high above her in his sled.
