Presenting the Fab Four of CGW High: Lamar Washington

Easily my most favorite character in Freshman Focus, Lamar Washington makes high school fun.  As an author, it’s fun and easy to write Lamar’s scenes and his words.  I can see him so clearly in my mind primarily because I have a little Lamar in me.  With Kendra by his side, Destiny to pick with, and classes to act up in, Lamar is someone we all know.  He is the class clown who is smart but wants to coast through school just enough to be able to play basketball.
