Heather McKeon | 5 comments I'd guess I read this book around 1989-1991, it was about a teen girl who went to a tech high school and she reads a book that is full of notes in the margins. The notes were written by a guy at an art high school and they start a friendship/romance. And there's a point where she dyes her hair with red kook aid and it starts raining so at first they think she's bleeding, but it's just the kook aid coming out.

Still looking if anyone has any ideas...

Heather, what's the location - U.S./country, big city/small town/region?

What kind of book is it - a textbook about ___, a novel?

Heather McKeon | 5 comments It takes place in the US, and I think close to a lake or the ocean because I remember her going to the beach. But I can't remember where... I'd guess it's a larger city because of the multiple specialized high schools.

I think the book she gets with his notes in it is a novel, but the only thing I remember about it is a scene about slaughtering animals.

Sorry I can't remember more.
