Dylan DiMeoPlayed by Kyla Kennedy
Dylan DiMeo likes to win. She is a small feisty force of nature who doesn't take guff from anyone. She is Maya's unapologetic "Mini-Me," never failing to take mom's side when newly-independent JJ or questioning Ray challenge Maya. And she runs. And runs. Dylan rails against the touchy-feely culture of her soft new school: not content simply to be the fastest and the best, she campaigns for others to be stripped of honors she believes they do not deserve. Dylan also has a soft spot for her dad – she enjoys cheap thrills just as much as he does, from messing with the neighbors to coming up with creative ways to make money online.
