Elizabeth's mother has a Frenzy For Fame that she can't lose grip on. There's much Liz doesn't know about her mother though, and she may try doing all she can to win her mother the popularity she deserves.

"Lets not overthink this. We've covered the basics - thats all that matters. You want to be on that stage, correct? You want to be seen, and noticed," my mother said to me in the aisles before the auditions of the next school play. I was near convinced that she wanted this more than I did.
I'd auditioned before, to be accepted into the Performing Arts Program, but then I had been coaxed into it by a mother who cared only for attention. The same mother's eyes were bulging now, encouraging me that my shyness would not win me a part on prime time television. I wouldn't dare tell her I cared not for fame.
