As Julie Bower's comedy about three smart, yet socially clumsy teens swings into season three, Lily worries that her school grades might suffer as a result of having a new boyfriend. Martha finds herself being crushed on by Rufus - who is helping her with her Spanish - but a deception intended to shake him off has unexpected results.

Broadcast, 28th May 2015

New kids' series following three socially awkward Year 8 girls as they navigate the trials and tribulations of teenage life. Lily (Cleo Demetriou), Martha (Sophia Dall'Aglio) and Jas (Ameerah Falzon-Ojo) prefer chess club and documentaries to parties and netball practice. They're not eager to please, however, and prefer to stick together rather than fighting to fit in. This opener sees them deal with embarrassing parents, while in episode two - after Blue Peter - they're keen to look their best for non-uniform day.
