The Girls Most Likely


High school can be a time of great highs and lows, especially for teenage 
girls.  There are always three groups of girls, the popular and pretty ones,
the average ones, who are in the majority, and the shy and introverted ones
who just have not yet found their voice.  

I am currently writing a novel about three girls, one from each category.


There is the prettiest, most popular girl.  She's the one who attains every 
honor that can possibly be attained by age 18.  She's a cheerleader, and the
homecoming queen.  She's the one every other girl wants to emulate and 
every boy wishes he could date.  Because of some fortunate convergence
of good genes, she is the one who seems to have every good thing that
can possibly be granted to one young girl.



The girl whose mother forced her into a musical career.  Although
she lost her childhood to hours of practice, she was never quite good
enough to be a star despite her stage mother's aspirations.




And finally, there is the girl who never thought she was pretty
enough, or thin enough, or popular enough.  She's the one who
made herself miserable by her falsely perceived shortcomings.




I am following these girls through high school and college and into
adulthood.  The world of high school is a surreal one.  Once we 
have survived adolescence it's a whole new ball game.  Some of 
us are prepared for the change, others are not.  In my book, I will take
you through the twists and turns of these three high school girls and
where life leads them. I am anxious to get this book finished!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  1. It sounds like a fun read! I remember at my tenth HS reunion, the boys who had been major nerds in HS had just finished medical school and looked a whole lot better! At the 20th, it was interesting to see who was aging well and who wasn't. (If 38 could ever be called aging!)

    1. When I think back to which boys I thought were "cool" in high school, I realize what a silly little girl I was back then ;-)

  2. It sounds wonderful! Don't you wish you could go back and relive those years knowing what you know now?

    1. I could probably go back and relive those years with the confidence I have now, but then I would probably be bored with all the drama.

  5. Sounds like a good read, Susan...and true to everyday life. So many different little cliques in school and everyone fit into one of them--whether they wanted to or not.
    Happy writing. xo Diana

  8. I think that most of us can relate to having been or have known of these 3 girls from our own school days.
    Your book sounds interesting, and I hope that you are able to get it finished soon too!
