You see, my stepbrothers call me “Iz,” my mother calls me “Elizabeth,”

determined to get a dog, no matter what it takes. That’s why we devised
the G. E. D. plan, which was the beginning of a lot of interesting moments
in an already lively house. Oh yes, let’s not forget my friend Claire,
who is dopey over Logan. Can you even begin to imagine how a praying mantis,

to my “never-a-dull-moment” life? Well, you’ll just have to read
Animal House and Iz to find out! (Kitt Lisenby, South
