Life isn't easy for Miranda. Whatever she attempts -- whether it's dating or dealing with her overbearing mother, to whom Miranda is a constant disappointment -- she always seems to fall flat. Miranda is desperate to fit in with her girly friends from boarding school, but that is hard to do as she is 6 feet 1 inches tall and gets called "sir" a bit too often for her liking. One of Miranda's main problems is she doesn't know how to behave around men, which is especially bad because her mother is desperate for her to find a husband. Despite all this, Miranda can be happy -- usually while playing games at her joke shop, which is managed by her childhood best friend, Stevie.
