Fifteen. It seems like such a magical age... for some, it's their Quinceanera, or their driver's permit, or for Jane Purdy (Beverly Cleary's Fifteen), their first boyfriend. But what awaits me? My second year in high school, for sure. But what else? I'm so impatient to turn fifteen, but also so unsure. My last year in Mia Maids, I'll most likely get my permit, etc. Doesn't that just seem like a dream to you, though? It seems almost impossible for me to ever have any of those things... especially the permit part. What age seems(ed) untouchable to you? What's it like being fifteen?
