I’m one of a million. No I don’t mean IN a million I mean I’m one of the million girls who are blundering through their teenage years wondering why they aren’t getting accepted in society. Haven’t you always seen that one girl in your class who’s always got her head in a book, who prefers reading to mingling with people and who isn’t good at making new friends?
I’m one of those girls and I’m proud of it. For teens if a person is always reading and doesn’t talk much to other people he or she automatically becomes depressed. I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve been reading a book, lost in one of Agatha Christies spectacularly planned murders or entranced in a novel by John Grisham, when someone walks up to me, taps me on the shoulder and asks me why I’m so depressed . When did reading become a stereo type for depression? Is it soo abnormal for a teen to be reading a book?
