Gigi (Really Close Grandmother) Edit
Gigi and Megan are very close. She is usually the one Megan goes to for advice and heart-to-heart talks, as opposed to her mother. They both share an interest in fashion and often bond over it.
Mrs. Wong (Mother) Edit
Megan and her mom are very different and not so close. Her mom hates fashion and was very upset when Megan told her she didn't want to go to MIT and Harvard in the first book and that her dream was to become a fashion designer. Mrs. Wong was jealous of how close Megan is with Gigi, but eventually became okay with it.
