Abstract: Kaleidoscope is a coming of age novel for women in the twenty-first century. This thesis contains the first three chapters of that novel, and it embarks on the premise of the book: When the spirited and quirky Julia, 21, returns to The Bradford Boarding School to carry on her mother's teaching legacy, she doesn't expect to fall for her colleague, Reagan; but on the first day of school, Julia realizes she's made a terrible mistake. Reagan's not a teacher; he's a senior in her class. In the wake of a previous sex scandal at Bradford, Julia must navigate her first year teaching, her feelings for Reagan, and her relationship with her boss and mentor, Joan Bates. The stakes are high--if Julia's caught with Reagan, she'll lose everything, and she'll take Bradford down with her. But what does it mean to love? What does it mean to have one life and to live it well? Julia doesn't know yet, but she does know this--The Bradford School is full of secrets. And here, nothing lies like the truth.
