1993, Blue Lines, High School, High School Crush, Janet, Janet Jackson, Key Yemaya Walker, Michael Jackson, Rolling Stone
Though I had never really been a Janet fan like that, around the time of the Janet album, one of my favorite songs by her, “If,” and that Rolling Stone cover!!!
The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
