“Girl Meets World” picks up where “Boy Meets World” left off. Riley Mathews, the preteen daughter of Cory and Topanga who married on the original series, tells the story from her point of view. Riley attends a school where her father is also one of her teachers, and her brother is one grade above her – and often reminds her that he is also one grade higher in life’s experiences. If opposites attract, then Riley’s relationship with her best friend Maya is a perfect example. Riley is a happy, optimistic, cheery, and high spirited 13 year old girl with great parents – while Maya is a not-so-trusting pessimistic girl who has never met her father. Regardless, the two are immensely loyal to each other as friends.
