I’m glad I’m not unattractive. But at times I’ve seriously wished I were regal, sophisticated, the kind of person who would be taken seriously. Unfortunately, I usually have to worry about people wanting to pat my head. In fact, Anna has always said my whole family, with our wavy blond hair, big brown eyes, and turned up noses, remind her of a litter of cocker spaniels. In other words, cute. Painfully cute.
“I totally think I might be named editor-in-chief,” I said to myself as much as to Anna. “I mean, I was a junior class assistant last year. Plus, I completely want it!”
“Don’t worry,” said Anna, always one to reassure me when I was nervous. “Bonine knows your writing.”
He knows my writing. He knows my writing. He knows my writing. Maybe if I repeated that mantra enough, my yearbook dream would come true.
During the rest of our walk to school my mind was spinning with plans. The first thing I would do would be to eliminate the Who’s Who section. Okay, it was one of the most popular features, but I have my reasons. My parents had been named the Most Adorable Couple in their high school yearbook eons ago, and I didn’t want a label like that to stalk me the rest of my life. Not that I was dating anyone in particular, adorable or otherwise. I just didn’t want to take any chances.
A Fun Romp!
...a fun romp through Laurel and Matt's senior year. Getting what you ask for can really complicate your life, especially when it makes you the boss of a potential boyfriend. Ms. Herrick does a nice job of leading her characters through the confusing time that is high school. Laurel learns that balancing work and romance is difficult work and that compromise is the name of the game….
... Ms. Herrick winds her light and humorous touch around the age-old teenage insecurities surrounding romance, other people's opinions, and self-image. Self-discovery can be both painful and rewarding, with a touch of rueful humor....
"...a well written story and I can relate to many of the situations from the high school experience. It keeps you guessing about what the outcome will bring. It also explores some of the uncertainties and challenges of this age group...intriguing story.
