‘Band Aids’ By Rebekah Lynn Pierce

Jenny “Jen the Hen” is a dreamer. She often gets lost in the lives of the tv characters she watches on television. She loves to create news storylines and characters for her favorite TV shows like “Fantasy Island,” which leads her to wanting to be a teacher. But not just any teacher. Jenny wants to be just like Mrs. Pritchard, her favorite English teacher who reads great stories and always gives the best advice. There’s just one problem. Jenny’s being bullied not just by her fellow high school classmates but even her guidance counselor, Mr. Steele, seems to be out to get her. A failed suicide attempt, followed by the encouraging words of Mrs. Pritchard, soon lead “Jen the Hen” to discover her own unique voice and that being a dreamer is worth having to use up all the band aids.
