Today we're thrilled to welcome Sheryl Scarborough (To Catch a Killer) to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Sheryl write Young Adult novels and while many of us are out of our teens, there's still something to love and reminisce over when it comes to beloved high school movies. Sheryl is here today with a few of her favorites—and the lessons we've all learned from them. Thanks, Sheryl!
To fully celebrate the awesomeness of high school movies I made a list of essential high school lessons then filled in movies to fulfill that list. What would high school be without: girlfriends, rebellion, positive self image, embracing differences, sensitivity, higher learning, sensible rules, a do over, and entrepreneurial spirit?
High school is difficult. It’s like being shipped off to another planet where the assignment is to fit in and look cool while learning all about the aliens (called boys!) To complicate matters, these boys aren’t going to give up any information about who they are or how to deal with them. This assignment would totally suck without cool girlfriends to help figure it all out. Cher in Clueless is very definitely the super-cool girlfriend I wished I had in high school. Don’t get me wrong I had girlfriends, and we were cool. But Cher is super-cool, a heroic best friend.
