The Characters

Here are some brief descriptions that help me picture my characters.

Sadie is petite (okay, short) with light brown hair and brown eyes. She prefers to wear jeans and simply designed tops.

Jana is average height, with long dark hair and dark eyes. Jana likes to wear trendy clothes and enjoys sparkle and sequins, when she can get away with them.

Andy is tall with messy blond hair and blue eyes. He wears glasses most of the time. In school, Andy wears mostly sweatpants and sweatshirts.

Sadie and Jana's "Awesome Achievement" Requirements

Sadie and Jana’s “Awesome Achievement” list develops and changes throughout the story. But the girls decide that to be list-worthy, an item generally has to qualify as one of the following:

- Something they’d never done before

- Something that would make high school history

- Something they probably would never get the chance to do again

- Breaking a law

- Breaking a school rule

- Winning an award (like a varsity letter in a sport)

Sadie’s Top Ten Reasons Why the Senior Superlative Vote May be Right
(even though it’s DEFINITELY wrong)

1. One day, Andy might rush into a burning building to save me and then I’ll owe him my whole life. Including marriage.

2. He’s so smart he probably can work some kind of mind control trick and get me to agree to marry him.

3. He might have even worked his mind control trick on the entire senior class, convincing them to vote for us as Most Likely to Get Married.

4. Maybe he has some hidden rock star talent that makes him secretly attractive to millions of girls. I just haven’t seen him in action yet.

5. He thinks he can buy my love with the gazillion dollars he’ll make when he discovers a new planet or something.

6. Based on my current boyfriend track record, I’m not expecting a ton of future offers.

7. College changes people. Check back in five years.

8. Real life changes people. Check back in ten years.

9. I might find out that I’m not really an American citizen and need to marry someone to stay in the country. In that case, Andy would be a good choice.

10. Lots of people get married for odd reasons. So, I guess, anything’s possible.

About the Author

Jennifer lives in a small town near Philadelphia, PA with her husband and three children. In college, she double majored in English and business, and later went back to school for her MBA. She currently works as a freelance writer and owns a small business. She also spends time cheering at her kids’ soccer games, re-learning algebra to help with homework assignments, and cooking up healthy dinners that nobody eats. When she’s not doing any of those things, you can find her reading, working on home design projects, or running (though she's much better at walking). At night, when her house is finally quiet, she brings her YA characters to life. My Senior Year of Awesome is her first novel.
