Class helped 'Queen Bees' author

Best-selling author Rosalind Wiseman got help for her new novel for young adults from an unusual source: a high school class of seniors at a school in Virginia. The Washington D.C.-based Wiseman is a teacher and author best known for her non-fiction book “Queen Bees and Wannabes,” which was about high school social cliques and was largely the basis for the movie “Mean Girls," starring Lindsay Lohan and written by Tina Fey. Yesterday her first novel for young adults was published. To make sure the events would ring true to young people, she tested it out on some of them, chapter by chapter.
