The Seniors

The next book to make an appearance on this crappy little site will be "Seniors #1 - Let's Party". In the front of each of the Seniors books (there are only twelve) are select pages from the Shadyside High Yearbook to introduce the seniors. It gives a name, picture, and what the person likes/hates/remembers from their high school years. It also has a quote for each of them. So I've decided to put them all up here. There are just twenty listed and it would be kinda nice to know who we're reading about. I would just scan the pages, but my scanner is being a little f&*^! Enjoy...or not?
