Meet Aaliyah Anderson, a beautiful, intelligent, ambitious thirteen-year old young woman ready to take over the world. It’s expected too, with her mom being a superstar broadcast journalist and her older brother Damon being an acclaimed writer and star sports player. 

Aaliyah lives a fantastic life, but still has to deal with tons of hardships and avoid many obstacles along her path to achieving her short term goal of finally making it to high school, what she feels as being closer to her dreams of being a successful business woman. 
 
Aaliyah has to deal with overwhelming family issues such as the divorce of her parents and the result of her “father’s” unfaithfulness, infidelity and a family secret that turns her world upside down. To make things even more pressing, she lives in the ruthless city of Willowsfield, statistically the number one most dangerous city in America. The city is where senseless community violence is the norm and life expectancy is low.  With the pressure to succeed and make it out of the ditch that Aaliyah calls her hometown, she still has to deal with more problems that test her patience.   
  
With its realistic characters, life-like setting and dynamic message, “The Diary of Aaliyah Anderson” is an entertaining and sure fire conversation starter of the positives and negatives surrounding the millennial generation.
