For the teenagers who don’t yet know, "TANGLES" are those inner rumblings… you know, the muted echoes in your gut that honestly have little to do with eating room-temperature Greek yogurt and more to do with everyday confusion about life. I'll admit that my tangles have much to do with a girl’s who, what, and why.... I’m Springly Dane, a not-so-popular but oh-so-loveable adolescent who is walking and wondering her way through middle school and right smack into high school—and all in the blink of an eye, it seems. "The Tangles of Springly Dane" will come to you as a series of episodes (so check back in often). I'll start by telling you about who I am, about my odd-ball name, and about my life in general-- what I worry about, what I wonder about...

what I dream about. I'm pretty sure the little snags in teenage life that I call 'tangles' will make sense to you. School, parents, siblings, boys(!)...

so many pitfalls to navigate, right? But at the same time, so much fun, so many friends, and SO, so much to look forward to. So come along-- check out the first installment and see what you think.... Maybe you and I will end up with a lot in common.
