Can you discuss what some of your “big” confessions would have been as a teenager?


Honestly, I don't think I ever had anything to confess that's as big as the confessions of the Sullivan girls. My family didn't have any scandalous secrets for me to reveal, and I wasn't responsible for anyone's death that I know of. I had my share of inappropriate boyfriends, but the stakes weren't so high.


One thing I'd have to confess to my high school friends is that in many ways I hid my real self. I was worried about fitting in. Inside I was a geek and a weirdo, but I could hide it pretty well, and I did.


I'd confess to being sadder inside than I ever let anyone know. I felt like I always had to appear happy, because what did I have to be unhappy about? I was a lucky girl and I knew it. But that doesn't mean I wasn't sad sometimes, and not being able to show it made it worse. I think Sassy struggles with these feelings in CONFESSIONS OF THE SULLIVAN SISTERS. She has a good home and a good education and all her needs are met and then some, so she doesn't feel entitled to be sad. And yet she is, and she can't explain why.

  2. Just made a new website and I need a rated guest post plugin for wordpress where users can simply write posts, then other users can rate them (hopefully 5 star based).

  3. it might help, but when I used to play that game, I would just pick them up. It would be a lot faster!
