High school is tough. The crushes, the bullying, the fact that anything you do can be splattered on social media. When I wrote PLAYING NICE, I knew it was important to be honest about high school, so I created a story about two girls. Two girls who can't seem to understand boys. Two girls who get bullied. Two girls whose differences make them stronger, whose friendship gives them hope. Two girls who discover the moment you think you're broken is actually the moment you break free.
Marty and Lil are high school to me. They drive around with the windows rolled down, blasting music, and screaming into the wind.

High school is tough, but it's a hell of a lot easier with friends.
