Hello Freshman Year

Shelley was without a doubt there for Simone as she lived through the horrors of bullying in 8th grade. Now it’s Simone’s turn to show up for Shelley.  Shelley is coping with the only mom she’s known, Grandma Cassie in the hospital, her biological mother coming back into her life unexpectedly, and entering high school…ALL AT THE SAME TIME.  Just being a new Freshman at Conner High School is more than enough to adjust to. Huge school, new classes, strict rules, and finding your way as a freshman seemed all too much.


Will Simone, Shelley, and their friends SURVIVE Freshman YEAR at Conner High? Freshman Year can be hard, filled with temptation, and it can feel like walking into an unknown world. Only time will tell if the crew from Hammond Middle School will be victorious in making it through the maze of their first year of high school.


Hello Freshman Year provides the reader/students with knowledge of what freshman year of high school entails. The reader will also see some of the challenges, and various situations a Freshman may have to face.

Hello Freshman Year is not only intriguing, but it is a must-read for all pre-teens and teenagers. It is a tool that no teenager should leave home without. It's a page-turner that educates, spotlights what high school life is truly like, and leaves you wanting more.
