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!
