Devon Noel is a former beauty queen and Andrew is a former English Class Smart-Alec. They've published their memoirs to help inspire you to write your own. Seriously, if they can write their stories, you can write yours - no matter how silly you may think it is.
Everyone has to take high school English. Andrew found a few ways to make it fun! Read through this collection of Andrew's writings from high school along with his present-day commentary and memories about the events surrounding the writings.
There are book reports, original poems, research papers, and creative writing. Some of them will make you laugh. Some of them will bore you to tears (don't worry, they probably bored Andrew to tears as well). Some of them may help you realize that the boring high school English class can actually be fun!
When you wear holey jeans, rock concert T-shirts, and frizzy headbanger hair, why would you trade it all in for sequins, rhinestones, and Cinderella high heels? One day a woman planted a transforming fantasy in my heavy-metal-infused brain and mesmerized me with visions of tiaras and roses. When I asked my father if I could participate in my first pageant, he shouted, "You want to do what?"
I then wondered, "Was this dream of beauty pageant glory too far-fetched for a dress-hating tomboy? Was this heavy metal duckling too ugly to ever achieve the crown?"
Devon takes you on her journey through the teen years as she dives headfirst into the world of pageantry. Includes more than 100 photos documenting her quest for the crown.
