Sticky Fingers
By Niki Burnham

Jenna Kassarian just got accepted into the early admissions program to Harvard. She's sure that her boyfriend, Scott, is going to get in. She later finds out that he didn't get in. When she finds this out she thinks that her future plans are now ruined. She planned for them to go to Harvard together, get married, and have a family. Scott is still positive he'll make it into Harvard, but he starts talking a lot about how Brown is also a good school. Jenna starts to compare herself to her bestfriend, Courtney, and starts to resent how she has always been a good student.

Prediction: I think that Scott will break up with Jenna, and Jenna will lose all focus on Harvard and her grades. Then she'll have a whole new set of problems, but later realize what she's doing to herself and fix everything.

  2. This confused me, you said Scott didn't get in but later you said he is still positive he will get in did he or did he not get in?

  3. He didn't get in for the early admissions, but he thinks he'll get in during the regular admissions time.

  4. I'm curious how the title relates to your book. At this point, I don't see much of a connection unless she's going to start stealing after the breakup you predict will happen?
