It’s that time of year again: back to school.

And what if inclusivity and anti-bullying were the new fashionable accessories for fall?

The popular fashion brand Hollister recently announced a cool collaboration with recording artists Khalid and Noah Cyrus to promote these topics in connection with a fun advertising campaign, because anti-bullying and inclusivity are now back in style.

It’s hip and it’s on point.

And that’s what Clementine Liu, the main character of my new novel, Bonjour Girl, believes too.

Back to School

Posted on September 5 by Robert Priest

My birthday is in July so going back to school was one way I kind of felt in sync with the outer world. Beginning each new grade I had a new age, a new season, new clothes   (or at least different hand-me-downs) and a new shot at something. Summer holidays were long enough that, come late August I was usually, if only secretly, beginning to make the equivalent of New Year's resolutions to myself about how studious and on time I would be. Not that I was a bad student.

I remember when back to school meant new pants, usually brown corduroys and a pair of Sears Toughskins. They were as sexy as oven mits and made of a denim weave as forgiving as tarpaulin. I think that was the idea; if you could only afford one pair of jeans a year, then these were the ones for you. And that was regardless of how many inches one grew between the months of August and June.
