Young Dumb Broke High School Kids

Everything sucks for high school kids Bliss, Olivia, and Miles. Bliss is a dreamer but she's knocked up and knocked down, Olivia is a lover with no one to love her back, and Miles is an orphan who would kill to have a family. And together they sling back slushies, barf down chili cheese fries, and try to sort out their lives in the most dangerous ways. They're unloved and fucked up...and it's whatever.

Young Dumb Broke High School Kids

Character Information

  • Bliss
    16,
    Asian American
    ,
    Female
    A spitfire of a girl who makes herself the center of
    attention. She's a dreamer crushed by the realities of her dull and
    regular life.
  • Miles
    16,
    Male
    Bliss' boyfriend. He's sweet, sensitive, and comes
    off as an all-around nice guy. He loves really hard and will do
    anything for the people he loves most. It may seem like it, but
    he's not that dumb, he kinda just doesn't get it.
  • Olivia
    16
    Bliss' best friend. She's probably kinda really
    pretty. Fun, confident, loyal, and somewhat beyond her years.
