Author Sarah Mlynowski came up with a brilliant marketing plan for her new YA novel, Gimme A Call. She asked YA novelists what they would say to their high school selves if they could. Here are some of my favorites:
Dear HS self: There are two reasons you have no girlfriend: 1. no confidence. 2. poor hygiene. #startwithnumbertwo – John Green
Dear HS self: You are NOT FAT. You will be, but you're not now, so enjoy it. – Sara Zarr
Dear HS self: Facebook will be invented. Are you sure you want your friend to take that picture? – Julia DeVillers
As for what I would say to myself:
Dear HS self: You know that so yummy dark gorgeous guy you’re dating? Keep a hold of him! He only gets better with age! (And he will love you after you're covered in stretch marks.)
Now, all of you reading this, what would you say to your high school self?
