Jane Simkins is a typical, busy teenager entering Galesburg High School, home of the revered Silver Streaks. She's nervous about classes, getting to school on time, finding her locker, being dragged into the bathroom for a one-way ticket to "Swirlyville," and just fitting in.
Presented in 161 weekly adventures over Jane's high-school career, "Streakin" touches all the bases of growing past Freshman fears to that last walk across the stage at graduation. In between are loads of life and laughs: a mix of muddy soccer cleats and marching mellophones, hair-dye disasters and Homecoming dresses, the first mad morning dash in the Black Pearl, selecting the right college…. and boys. Ranging from the monumental to the mundane, the real-life stories will have young readers anticipating and older ones reminiscing their own teenage days.
