The TRUTH, I'm 10, I'm Smart and I Know Everything! by Dr Barbara Holstein
Tell us about your heroine --- the female lead in your book. The heroine in THE TRUTH, I'm Ten, I'm Smart and I Know Everything! is a ten-year old girl. She is funny, wise, honest and she really does know the truth about most things.
What's her name? Her name is never mentioned in the book, which is her diary over a two year period.
Why did you pick that name? Not giving her a name makes it easy to identify with her. She is really all of us -once, when we were young.
Give us a brief description of how she looks. She has light brown hair and hazel eyes. She is certain that she would be very pretty if she could wear make-up. Her mother won't let her. She has a space between her two front teeth.
Is there anything unusual about her appearance? No-except that she is growing fast and keeps getting taller while the boy she is in love with keeps getting shorter.
Who does she love? Why? She loves Paul. She doesn't know why. When he came to her classroom as a new student she just felt her heart turn over in her body and she couldn't stop the most amazing feelings from overwhelming her.
Does this person love her? No. He isn't aware of her passions.
Tell us about her family. She has one younger brother. They have a house. Her parents fight a lot and that upsets her. Sometimes they all have fun together, like going on mystery rides. She hates some of her cousins cause they tease her.
Where is she from? Somewhere out there in Middle America.
Does her hometown affect her behavior, thoughts and attitude? Yes. For example, it is safe and she can take the bus downtown all by herself and shop in the stores.
What does she want out of life? She wants to marry Paul. She wants to have her deepest questions answered. She wants to hold on to herself!
What's her biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.) I can't tell but it has to do with a locket she receives from her aunt.
Did you write more than one story about her? Yes, she will be my heroine in the sequel to the first book.
How would she describe you? A nice, smart woman who took the time to really understand her.
Is there anything else about your heroine that we need to know? Feel free to share. She loves Nancy Drew.
