Today to talk secrets, we have a wonderful author and a wonderful person as well, Sydney Salter. Confession. My fave name for a girl is Sydney. I always wished I was named Sydney.
I love your books so much!!! Thanks for stopping by. So. Right to it. Are you good at keeping secrets? Why or why not?
Sydney: I am good at keeping secrets because I'd rather hear juicy new stuff than tell someone what I already know!
A smart rah rah. I think it's a compliment. Smart and cheery! Full of pep! It fits!! So describe your fave teen "rah rah" outfit.
Sydney: A little red overalls mini-dress that I wore with a yellow spaghetti-strap tank. Combine that with my fluffy 80s perm & I felt SO cute!
You were so cute I bet. Oh 80's hair. I wonder if you'll ever come back. If you could go back to high school knowing now what you didn’t know then, what is one thing you would change? What do you wish you could have told your teen self?
Sydney: I would have believed in myself and not worried so much about my flaws (duh, we all have them!). I would've told myself what I'm telling my daughter who starts high school this week: the key to high school is self-acceptance. Quiet confidence combined with genuine friendliness is incredibly attractive! And anyone who judges you based on the circumference of your thighs (or nose-width, in my case) isn't worth knowing, anyway.
True dat. And I think you have a lovely nose. And genuine friendliness! Thanks so much for stopping by Sydney!
