Middle School Advice from author Megan McCafferty
NO ONE IS THINKING ABOUT YOUR NOSE ZIT AS MUCH AS YOU ARE.
Clear-skinned readers, CONGRATULATIONS! But if it isn’t a nose zit you’re worried about, it’s probably something else like a crooked tooth or shortness or tallness or hairy legs. The nose zit, you see, is a symbol for whatever weirdness in your appearance that is taking up way too much brainspace. And with so many strange physical changes happening all at once, it’s no wonder you wake up some mornings wondering what the heck happened to the body you had when you went to bed.
The good news is this: Hormones are happening to everyone, just not at the same time and in the same ways. I guarantee your classmates are too preoccupied with their own nose zits—real or symbolic–to give much thought to yours.
