Beware: This is a real high school diary. I will not fall madly in love with a charming prince or my future husband. I won't even get pregnant with that guy in Calculus. Hell, I won't even take Calculus. Diary Girl is my journey through a four year long maze of cut throat friendships, popularity races, diet pills, and mortal enemies - and somehow I find my way out. This project is a compilation of real diary entries stripped straight from the journals I vigorously wrote during my four years in high school. So, although the names have been changed, I promise that the stories, experiences, and people are all very real. For me, high school was not a single hurdle that I needed to overcome. It was not only an eating disorder or only true loneliness in the midst of a large group of friends. It was some new challenge every day. And now, it's all yours.
