Reading Tweets #3: Text Connections

Text to Self (Buried 81) 

Emily is an All-Star high school swimmer with parents who don't accept anything but the best from her. When Emily doesn't end up getting the scholarship to university that she told her parents she did, they go AWOL. I've never lied to my parents about getting into university and have them freaking out, but I play soccer and I know what it's like to have a bad game, and have your parents be not only disappointed in your team, but you. Playing any sport at a high level is stressful when your parents want nothing but success from you, so when Emily has a bad swim and her parents get disappointed, I can say I definitely know the feeling. 

Text to World 

The girls from Rosewood, Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily are all being virtually, emotionally, physically and mentally abused by an anonymous bully named, A. Now, bullying happens all over the world to boys and girls, men and women of all different shapes, sizes, ages and ethnicities. No one helps the girls with this anonymous bully, and the sad reality of all this is that a lot if people, if not most people, in real life stand and watch as one or multiple of their peers gets bullied or harrassed. If more people stood up for others when being bullied, maybe we could put an end to it, and maybe the girls could out an end to A once and for all.
