Yep, so if the characters were born in our time, what do you think they would be like?

I feel like Shay would be like that girl on Mean Girls. She would conform at first at try to be one of the popular kids and do things everyone else is doing, but then she‘d realize how unhappy she is and how popularity and all that crap isn‘t important and then move on to different friends and a different social group.

And I picture David being some annoying kid who‘s always protesting some cause (but in that annoying in-your-face “this cause is really important but I‘m not going to do anything about it other than bitch“ kind of way)

I find all of those to be very unrealistic except for Tally shacking up with the most popular guy... However, even that I doubt, I could just see that happening.

I honestly don't think any of the characters would fit into any social norm of our society... :/ Maybe I am just being a little too cynical?

Oh, I think they would manage in our world. Just like we would manage in theirs. People can adapt.   :P

I feel like the Sly Girls would be like that really cool group thatevery girl would be grateful to get into. I also feel like Peris would be one of those people who are forever alone.

Peris would not fit in in an American school, so he would learn french and attend a school in Paris. Thus Peris in Paris  8)
