Alas, I am not the winner of the Book Riot High School Horror Story contest. Thank you a thousand times and again to everyone who took the time to read my story and vote for me. It ended up being a close contest!
Although I didn’t win the grand prize, I did win an awesome parting gift just for being a finalist. Book Riot is sending me a signed copy of Jen Lancaster’s latest novel, HERE I GO AGAIN! I’m thrilled on the account that I love books, but also because Jen Lancaster is freaking hilarious and her book was on my wish list. I’m super excited to receive a signed copy!
In case you missed my high school horror story submission, here it is:
After marching band rehearsal and before concert band we change out of our stinky clothes and into appropriate school wear. On this particular day I am rocking my white tights and oh-so-adorable red pleated skirt with the white mohair sweater. I glance in the mirror and smile, because yes, I look good. I’m walking to the band room when he rushes up to me and pushes me back up against the wall. It’s a grand moment because the he I’m referring to is none other than the most amazingly cute Senior bass drum player that I’ve been secretly (okay, not so secretly) crushing on. Here he is, with that gorgeous face inches from my own Freshman smile and we’re all alone in this hallway. I’m about to say hello when he turns red and blurts out the news. “Your skirt is caught up in your pantyhose.” He walks away without looking back and I am left to retrieve my adorable red pleated skirt from my white tights. Pure mortification on every level.
Thank you again for your generous votes!
