Share Your Heroine

The TRUTH, I’m 10, I’m Smart and I Know Everything! by Dr Barbara Holstein

"Tell us about your heroine — the female lead in your book. The heroine in THE TRUTH, I’m Ten, I’m Smart and I Know Everything! is a ten-year old girl. She is funny, wise, honest and she really does know the truth about most things.

What’s her name? Her name is never mentioned in the book, which is her diary over a two year period.

Why did you pick that name? Not giving her a name makes it easy to identify with her. She is really all of us -once, when we were young.

Give us a brief description of how she looks. She has light brown hair and hazel eyes. She is certain that she would be very pretty if she could wear make-up. Her mother won’t let her. She has a space between her two front teeth.

Is there anything unusual about her appearance? No-except that she is growing fast and keeps getting taller while the boy she is in love with keeps getting shorter.

Who does she love? Why? She loves Paul. She doesn’t know why. When he came to her classroom as a new student she just felt her heart turn over in her body and she couldn’t stop the most amazing feelings from overwhelming her….".

This is part of my interview at   I would love for you to to to the blog and read the rest of the interview.  Nikki does such a great job of interviewing.  What do you think about my heroine?  Did you ever know someone like her?  Maybe yourself?  Let me know.
