Excerpt from the book
Just like most high school girls, Celia, has done her best to blend in, successfully avoiding falling victim to the many cruelties that can result from sticking out. Her high school, located in the suburbs of upper-class middle America, had no tolerance for people who didn't follow the social rules: maintain an attractive appearance, don't be too dumb or too smart and avoid anything that wasn't made popular by mass media.
At eighteen years old, just before her graduation, she has managed to find herself in the most popular and idolized of all the cliques. This was highly unusual because Celia actually didn't have any of the traits that generally lead to high school admiration. Her Brazilian accent, dark skin, coarse hair, strong muscles and continual practice of martial arts made her “strange” to say the least. However, in spite of her “disadvantages,” she was able to use her charm, wit and unique character to win over most of the people she met. Not to mention that the popular kids often enjoyed the benefits of being able to copy Celia's homework and tests.
It didn't bother her that her friends were almost completely oriented around superficiality, obsessed with shows like Idle America or the new vampire series “Highlights.” Celia also turned a blind eye when her friends were cruel to everyone who was not in their clique. It took her years to climb her way up the social ladder and she was willing to make some sacrifices of her personal comfort in order to be accepted by the people who matter. She cringed on the inside whenever she saw some of the under classmen suffer from the almost daily prank, but managed to keep a beautiful smile on the outside to mask her sympathetic thoughts.
