John Green Dream
I usually only inflict my dreams on Richard and coworkers but this one was great. I dreamed last night I was reviewing a new book by John Green, and it was terrific. And so John Green: it was about this college upperclassman who enlisted an impressionable freshman girl in a plan to expose a college administrator, who was widely considered heinous for reasons I don't remember. The boy had some kind of incriminating paperwork that he was talking the girl into faxing to the school newspaper. WHY couldn't he do it himself? Because the evidence would also in some way destroy the life of another girl, also a freshman, who had rejected the boy's romantic advances in high school. That girl, who looked like the beautiful Sam Stosur (I've been watching the French Open) was a drummer in a band, a free spirit, and all around nice person. I woke up before I finished the book but the plot turned on the two girls becoming friends and together conspiring to put the boy in his place. It was all very Don Giovanni.
