Jeremy Turner is the star/hero/victim in my book WOOF: A Body Swap Adventure.
Here’s an entry from his diary:
My name is Jeremy and I’ve just started a new school – mid-term.
Who does that?
My parents have no regard for my feelings.
I would love to make some new friends to hang out with. Fat chance of that happening. My classmates think I’m stuck up. For the record - I’m not. Just a bit on the shy side. But with a name like Jeremy, who can blame them?
I wish I had a cool name like Max, Alex, Logan, Tyler, Ryan, Chad, Jake… I could go on, but you’ve got the picture. Hmmmm (big sigh), So unless I change my name legally by Deed Poll, I guess I’m stuck with Jeremy.
But maybe not. A nickname would be great.
One of the boys in my class is nicknamed ‘Spider’. How awesome is that? It’s because he’s wicked at football (soccer if you live in the US) and it’s like he has six legs on the pitch. Another boy is called Jack Banks and he gets Banksy.
Maybe you have a cool nickname already or would like one. I’d love to know what it is or what your dream nickname would be. Just drop me a line via this site or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
