MEAN GIRLS, Part Two
I mentioned yesterday that a couple YA books I'd read had mean girls in them.
They were popular in school and at the top of the food chain.
And they were involved in some brutal bullying.
A recent Twitter feed from Agent Mandy Hubbard asked if anyone REALLY had queen bee mean girls in their high school.
And it got me thinking.
I, for one, DID NOT. There was a very popular girl (the queen bee, if you will) named Laura. But she wasn't mean or a bully. Everyone was just dying to be her friend.
Which begs the question: Do these kind of characters really exist or do they only make good fiction?
