The series Lizzie McGuire follows the journey of a 13-year-old girl of the same name. Lizzie is now going through adolescence, and like with other teenagers, she is facing profound personal and social issues. It’s common in teenagers that they cannot speak about their thoughts, and sometimes it happens with Lizzie too. But, whenever that happens, Lizzie’s animated alter ego comes on-screen and talks about Lizzie’s innermost thoughts. Lizzie isn’t alone in this journey, as she has Miranda and Gordo – her best friends – at her side. She also has a lovely yet sometimes annoying family.
