How do you get kicked off your school’s honor club? How about teaming up with the school drug dealer to spread the rumor that you’re a troubled burnout?
Ever since she caught the Student Mentor’s President cheating on her at Homecoming, Elle McKernan is looking for any excuse to get out of her commitments as secretary. When the principal adamantly refuses to let her off the team, she turns to local school psycho Ronnie Gonzales to ruin her reputation and get her kicked off for good! Collaborating with a troublemaker, however, proves to be impossible without making any actual trouble. And to further complicate matters, she finds herself rebounding for Ronnie instead. Will she be able to abandon her mild-mannered ways and step into the new persona she invented? Or will she stay true to herself at the risk of losing the only friend she has left?

What kind of book is this? Young Adult Contemporary. Coming of Age.
How long is it? 61,000 words. (Which is like 240 pages on a Microsoft Word document.)
Where did you come up with this idea? This was originally written as a six-season television show, based off my experiences in high school.
Will this be a series like the TV show? No. Identity Crisis is being pitched as a stand-alone novel.
Weren’t you going to title this something else? Yes, I was originally going to call the book “The Other Five Percent”. I reverted the name back to its predecessor “Identity Crisis” on the suggestion of my editor.
Have you considered self-publishing? I have and that may be an avenue for this book. But ultimately, I am interested in becoming traditionally published, whether it be this work or something different.
