Core Cast of Characters
Jessica: Twelve years old, running around with long hair flying and often-skinned knees bared. An aspiring zine author who once wanted to be a goldfish when she grew up.
Mom: Jessica's "one mom," Joyce - a practical and relaxed woman who has the comfortable habit of never worrying about trivialties like grape juice stains on the carpet. Refinishes and builds "fancy furniture."
Moms: Jessica's other mom, and a cascade of characters herself:
Dorian: One of the Moms, a laid-back and funny woman.
Gail: Jess' practical and loving older sister.
Jack: Jess' uncle, an affable and welcoming man who taught her how to ride a bike.
Kelly: Another mom, involved with Jess' Girl Scout Troop. A bit of a worrier.
Kitten: Jess' bouncy, sparkly little sister and best friend, at least when she was younger.
Tommy: A shy but friendly four year old who loves firetrucks...
