30-Day October Book Challenge ~ Day 25

Unchosen - Nan Gilbert

Day 25 ~ A character you can relate to the most

 

I had trouble fitting in when I started high school (actually, long before that). At the time I thought I was the only misfit around.

 

The Unchosen is all about those feelings. Three young girls become friends, because they feel unchosen by others. As the story develops, the girls struggle with their desires to make friends and be liked. Each eventually finds a way to fit in, but the ways they go about it are different and one makes a less-than-desirable choice.

 

I found places where I fit in, too. But that feeling of being a misfit has never really gone away. And I don't think I want it to.
