Author has written 1 story for Young Adult.

Name: Raye (it's not on my birth certificate, but it's close.) Except that pen name was already taken and I didn't want to think up something complicated, so I added the day that my boyfriend asked me out. 12/3/07.

Age: 15. Just finished freshman year.

Sex: Very very female.

Hair: Light brown with sun/chlorine highlights, longish (boyfriend calls it boob-level), naturally wavy but straightened.

Skin: Pale in winter, tan in summer. Usually bruises on my legs and elbows (I'm alittle clumsy.) Scars.

Eyes: Very very green. Purple or green eyeliner, black mascara.

Height/Weight: 5' 4"/118 (wish it were lower. Who doesn't.)

Location: A house at the end of a street by the river, in a bubble in New Jersey.

Occupation: Professional magazine-reader/lazyass. Aka lifeguard.

Disposition: May look sleepy and out of it, talk to me and I will happily participate in random stream-of-consciousness conversation. An easy laugh.

Hobbies: Swimming. Music. Friends. Writing an incredibly personal diary and putting it on the internet, which is probably a stupid idea but I never said I was smart. I will get the motivation to write fiction! I swear.

Music: Hmm, where do I start? In no particular order: Placebo, Kill Hannah (90s stuff is still better!), Mindless Self Indulgence, Smashing Pumpkins, The Pixies, Crystal Castles, The Smiths/Morissey (never could keep the two straight), MGMT, CocoRosie, Blur, Porno for Pyros, Hotel Persona, Pompeii, Henry Homesweet!, Fischerspooner, Of Montreal, Blaqk Audio, Band of Horses, Depeche Mode, Santogold, Shiny Toy Guns, Dragonette, The Birthday Massacre, Marilyn Manson, PlayRadioPlay!, Against Me!, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Pulp, Saosin, Uffie, Hollywood Undead, The Medic Droid, InnerPartySystem, Metro Station, The Apples in Stereo, AFI, Nirvana, The Arcade Fire, Beck, Gatsby's American Dream, Forgive Durden, Coldplay (the new album), Flobots, Infected Mushroom, Jack's Mannequin, Inkwell, Jeffree Star, Just Jack, Joy Electric, JamisonParker, The Killers, Muse, October Fall (RIP), The Early November (RIP), The Postal Service, Radiohead, Powerspace, Ringside, She Wants Revenge, The Bravery, Snow Patrol (Run only), The Cure, Superfamily, Coheed and Cambria, Fictionplane, The Faint, Joy Electric, and alot of others that I can't think of at the moment.

Movies: Edward Scissorhands, Lars and the Real Girl, Party Monster, Hot Fuzz, 1408, Romeo and Juliet (90s version), I Am Legend, and all those 80s teen movies.

Books: I don't read enough anymore. I really should get on that. Uglies/Pretties/Specials/Extras/Peeps by Scott Westerfeld, My Sister's Keeper and Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult, A Great and Terrible Beauty and others by Libba Bray, The Bartimaeus Trilogy, Prep, Lord of the Flies, and the Harry Potters (gotta love them.)

TV Shows: The Office, House, Pushing Daisies, Ugly Betty, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, Project Runway, Top Chef when I'm hungry (if you watch it and drink water it's totally satisfying), and all the countdowns on E! and VH1.

Food: Cherry slushies, blueberry Pop-Tarts (though I love all kinds), pickles, green/black tea with nothing, black coffee, sugary iced coffee drinks from Starbucks, veggie sushi rolls, tofu tempura, cookies, fruit+veggies that don't make me feel fat. I can't stand strawberries, apples, and anything fake-strawberry, grape, or watermelon-flavored.

People: I love wierd people. I love sarcasm and dry humor and trading non-serious insults with people. I like people that are like me and unlike me. It worries me when people are too nice, it means they're hiding something. And I hate people that judge/stereotype other people and themselves.

Summer of '08 reviews
The actual journal of a real, cynical, and unusually observant 15-year-old girl. It's not generic, it's not boring, it's not pages and pages of whining and ranting. It's real stories, real drama, real gossip. Now that's entertainment.
