“At 13 years old, I was too nerdy to be a tomboy and too tomboyish to be a nerd.
As a middle child, I was too young to be a big girl and too old to be a baby.
In school, I did well enough to be called smart, but was too boisterous to be considered good.
I hated it—not knowing who I was and where I fit in. I was stuck in the in-between, and it felt awkward, frustrating, and terribly lonely.
I write for adolescents in the hope that I can help at least one young reader feel less lonely.”
