I wish there were instructions on how to be a teenager. Just a simple book, nothing with too much information, just enough to get the points across. Sadly, we are forced to live each day guessing on every single topic. Nothing is predictable. Nothing stays the same for more than a few minutes. High school manipulates each word you say. Each step you make is turned into something drastic. It doesn't even matter if you meant to say one thing. All that matters is how the world interprets it.

The author's comments:
I'm sure at least one other high school student wishes that high school wasn't so manipulative, scary and necessary.
