I believe that the author of "What is Cool" is absolutely correct! Why should we try to fit in with a certain group by wearing expensive name-brand clothes? Really, today kids try very hard to impress their friends but before you know it we'll all graduate and our high school level of coolness will mean nothing. We may never see these people again!
Being yourself is important. Isn't trying to be cool really a waste of time? Think about it!
