for Good Girls by Laura Ruby
Some people would say this is the story of a photograph. How it was taken, and what happened to me after the whole world saw it.
And it is.
But it's also the story of a lot of other things. A boy so beautiful he's like a punch to the throat. Best friends-the outrageous old ones and the out-of-the-blue new. It's about fishnets and eyebrow rings and a chick named Hamlet. Kick lines at lumberyards and conga lines at the prom. Crying in cars and gazing at stars. Mistakes, misunderstandings, and misconceptions. Good girls, bad boys, and everyone in between.
This is a story about love.
So look at the picture all you want.
I am so much more than what you see.
