What do you do when you find out your family isn't your family, death is knocking at your door, and that guy you can't stop thinking about knows more about who you are than you do? Amelia Hoffman was just a normal 15-year-old until she found out the truth. Now ancient myths, supernatural beings, and murder have changed everything. Tests and school dances are no longer the biggest worry in her life-- she has to figure out how to save everyone she loves and accept the future in front of her before its too late.
I know I have an 'About Me' section, and that area over there --> says a few things about me too, but did you know . . .?
I was perusing another writer's blog and one from her archive caught my eye - it was a letter to her younger self. Her 20 year old self. I read it and was amused by the things she had learned since she turned 30. One was - never give up. I've always thought that myself. I wouldn't be who I am, what I am, if I had given up.
Then I got to thinking . . . didn't P!nk write a song about talking to her younger self? So I looked it up, and sure enough I found the song 'Conversations with my 13 year old self'. I liked that song from P!nk's album 'I'm not Dead'. She's very expressive, out-spoken, to the point . . . something I wish I could be. So I continued thinking (*can you smell the smoke from where you are?* snicker, snicker) . . . what would I tell my younger self? Would I say, 'stiffen up that upper lip'? Would I bash myself for not being confident? Would I take my 13 year old self and give me a hug?
