Getting her novel off the ground was hard, Trinity School of Texas eighth-grader Lauren Lenhart admits. She's working on a story about a 15-year-old girl living in small-town Pennsylvania who has to deal with growing up and her parents' divorce. "Whenever I first began the novel, because I just didn't really know what I was writing about, it took me a long time," Lauren said. "But then I was like, 'Lauren, you have to write this.' So finally, I just sat down and started writing random stuff.
