Daisy's blog

High school is not for sissies

Fourteen-year-old Daisy barely made it through middle school. After three years of being constantly taunted and bullied, she’s decided it’s time for a change. It all begins with a list of things she feels she needs: a best friend, popularity, a boyfriend, a first kiss, a spot on the cheerleading squad, and most importantly, boobs. With list in hand, Daisy just knows she will make a huge splash at Glenmark High, and her days of being miserable will be over.

The splash she makes isn’t exactly what she was going for, and after a disastrous first day, she is ready to throw in the towel. It only takes a chance meeting with sophomore Russel Bryan, her grade school crush, to change everything. Soon, Daisy finds herself hanging out with the popular girls, preparing to try out for a spot on the cheerleading squad and looking forward to the homecoming dance.

Just when things start to look up for her, a betrayal by a new friend shatters everything she had hoped for. With her reputation on the line and the threat of a family secret being revealed, Daisy decides to take things into her own hands. It may not be her destiny to be popular, but she is done being taken advantage of.

Part "Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret" and part "Mean Girls", "All About Daisy" is a hilarious and touching coming of age story that will have you cheering for the underdog.

High school is not for sissies. I figured that one out the first day of freshman year. Iíd spent the last three years of my life being relentlessly bullied, and quite honestly, I didnít think it could get any worse. I had no friends my own age, had never had a boyfriend and unlike most girls in my class, I still had no boobs.

I had been looking forward to the day that I would first grace the halls of Glenmark High since the sixth grade. In my mind, high school was when things really started to happen for a girl, and lord knows, I was ready for something good to happen to me.

That summer, on the day of my fourteenth birthday (June 26 to be exact), I decided to make some life changes. I needed to be more assertive, more mature and more in tune with my life. I needed to get myself out there. Popularity isnít just handed to you. If you want people to take notice, you need to give them something to notice.

The first thing I did was start a blog, I also created a Facebook page (against my fatherís wishes) and then I put together a list of eight things that I planned to make happen before the end of the school year. Like most fourteen-year-old girls, I had a million different things that I wanted to accomplish in life, but I firmly believed it was important to take small steps. I settled on eight things because, first of all, eight is my favorite number and furthermore, I knew I needed to keep the list manageable. As of that day, my list contained the following eight things:

1. Grow boobs

2. Land a starring role in the school musical

3. Find a new best friend

4. Get a boyfriend

5. Have my first kiss

6. Make the cheerleading squad

7. Record a hit single

8. Be popular
