A New Start
Starting at a new high school at the beginning of junior year was difficult for any teenage girl.
Especially if that school was newly integrated.
Nora shook awake at the vicious sound of a car alarm, no wait- that was just her exceedingly obnoxious alarm clock. Groaning in reluctance, she forced her sparkling green eyes to open and slam the snooze button on her alarm clock. She let out a sigh of relief, she could spare another few minutes to rest her eyes.
A few seconds later, her door swung open and her Mom (who was an exceedingly peppy morning person) ran over and excitedly shook her daughter awake. “Eleanor! It’s time for your first day of school.” She squealed eagerly.
Her daughter let out an audible groan, “Mom, one it’s Nora. Two, it’s only six I have another thirty minutes before I actually have to get up. And three, you are way too freaking loud in the morning.” She shoved her face back into her pillow and immediately began to snore.
