Though Lolita loves to read fashion magazines, she's nothing like the women who appear in them. This sad, sarcastic teenager suffers with issues of self-esteem and craves nothing more than just the slightest bit of attention from her father. Though she craves his acknowledgement, Lolita doesn't think much of him. He's a self-obsessed writer who doesn't even think twice about leaving her outside while he goes inside clubs and receives the VIP treatment. Not only does he think nothing of taking phone calls while they're out to lunch together, but he barely even has any awareness of his daughter's budding singing career.

Lolita suspects his treatment of her has something to do with her appearance. Though she's not really overweight, she is much bigger than the women who run in her father's circles. He even goes so far as to refer to her as "big girl," a nickname that hurts her and raises her hackles.

The agony doesn't stop there, though. It's not just her father who ignores her. People in general pay Lolita little attention until they discover she is the daughter of a famous writer. Though she makes a valiant effort to keep her chin up, she is always suspicious of people who do deign to speak to her. As a result, her defense mechanism is certainly preventing her from getting hurt, but it also might be keeping her from developing any real, significant relationships. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
