Sophomore Year: Best Year Ever! by Kim Briggs

Freshmen are new to high school. They have no idea what high school means and they're just trying to get through the day. Plus they still have traces of that hyperactive middle school-er who is still growing into their body.


Juniors know exactly what's expected of them and just how far they can push the limits without getting in trouble.


Seniors are done with the drama. They're counting the days to graduation.


Sophomores--Best Year Ever.

All sorts of exciting things happen Sophomore year:
  • First job
  • First Driver's Permit 
  • First Real Dates with someone who Drives.
  • Read AMAZING books: Catcher in the Rye, To Kill A Mockingbird, Monster, One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest, Into the Wild... 
They start to find their place in the Social Hierarchy of High School. Jock. Band Geek. Brainiac. Artist. Goth. Politician. Rebel.  

They more or less figure out what's expected of them academically and behaviorally. **Whether they choose to follow those expectations is a completely different ballgame.

Sophomores don't have the weight of expectation on their shoulders about graduation and college, so anything is POSSIBLE.

Mistakes are made both in and out of school, but Sophomores can't let their poor choices define them.  

Sophomores still have TIME to retake that class they failed or break up with the boy who is a jerk or ditch the Mean Girl clique and find some friends who will be there to support them through all the breakups and teenage angst. 

Sophomore year everything is new and awkward and amazing and fun.

What's your favorite year?

INTERVIEW WITH K.M. WALTON, YA FEST & HARRY POTTER

Dear Alison and readers, Have I got a surprise for you...Guess who stopped by to chat? Any guesses? No peeking at the title. Wait, I guess it's too late. Okay, I'll tell you anyway, KM Walton, the YA Author of all of these books...




Hi K.M.,

Thanks so much for stopping by to talk to me. Care for a chai latte or a glass of wine? It’s Friday. Let’s go for the wine.
Excellent choice. I’ll have one as well. So tell me, when did you become a writer? Despite my debut novel releasing when I was 44, my stacks of journals from childhood onward prove that I’ve always been a writer.
Yeah, it took me a while to figure out what I really wanted to be when I grew up. The bulging folder filled with scraps of paper and napkins of all my “book” ideas and “story” ideas didn’t make me realize my true calling until six or seven years ago. So tell me, what do you love about writing? Possibility. I’m a wildly anticipatory person, always have been. A dreamer for sure. Writing, with all of its glorious poss…

A Starr gone. A team betrayed. You never know who your true friends are until a gun’s pointed at you. One will take a bullet, and the other will pull the trigger. Starr learned that lesson the hard way. The perfect smile. A killer attitude.
