"I Remember Him" Book
Sydney Oden is a big fan of writing her own stories. She loves reading all kinds of books and has always dreamed of publishing her own. An Allatoona High School Senior in Georgia, Sydney enjoys running cross country, track, and is actively involved in her local church. She is an Ambassador Girl Scout in Troop #2441 and has been a Girl Scout since she was a 5 year old Daisy. When first brainstorming ideas for her Girl Scout Gold Award, she realized that she could pursue her publishing dream. This book is the realization of that dream.
