Growing up can be hazardous to your health. Nevada Tate wasn't trying to be bad on purpose; it just happened that way. She was the epiphany of Nerd Central; she was a genius who lacked social skills and it didn't help that she was always the new kid in school and that she had skipped two grade levels. Face it, being 15 years old, brand new to a school and a senior was like having "beat me" tattooed on her forehead.
Zai Robinson wasn't trying to be the most popular boy in school. As a matter of fact he didn't even like the attention; but what could he do—rich, a natural athlete with good looks; oh yea and he had the fast car to go with it. Who else could he date except the most popular and the cutest girl in school; of course that was Jennifer Ashley Taylor; oooh what a cliché name. So why didn't this formula work like clockwork? Maybe because it comes a time in every teenager's life when they have to accept they must live their own life and stop worrying about trying to fit in and be what's expected of them.
So how do you negotiate growing up into being your own person while trying to balance damage control of your reputation and popularity? You do it day by day; one decision at a time until you've grown up. The problem is: when do you know you've grown up?
