So Awkward

Series 1

Episode 7: Library v Tree

First broadcast: on CBBC ChannelLatest broadcast: on CBBC HD

Available for years

Lily, Martha and Jas are super-bright but socially awkward 13-year-old girls trying to make sense of life, boys and fitting in. While other girls are going to parties, netball practice and sleepovers, our inseparable trio are busy with chess club, homework and Friday nights in watching documentaries.

The girls, led by Martha, have been campaigning hard for a new school library. When Mrs Griggs announces that the library campaign has been successful, joy for Jas immediately turns to horror when she learns her favourite tree will need to be cut down to make way for the library. She and Martha are now at loggerheads. Lily tries to employ conflict resolution to bring the two together but fails. As a last resort, she turns to their parents to see if their intervention can make a difference. It only makes matters worse - the parents themselves fall out and behave in an even more childish way than the girls.

Meanwhile, Lily has been trying to work on a video diary about friendship for a competition she's entered, a task made seemingly impossible when the friends are in such conflict. But the fact that Matt is helping and she gets to hang out with him is a big bonus. Show less
