Plus we're in the Midwest. Everything from construction to machine shop work to gun making. Again, we're in the Midwest.
Suburban prep? I'm thinking a girl who grew up in the tomboy/Nancy Drew mold, and in the last year or two has really start to come into her own as a young woman, embracing the more feminine side of things to the point where maybe people are talking football player dates and cheer practice in her future, even if the idea makes her uncomfortable since her self esteem hasn't caught up to her growing cup size yet.
Mother works at the nearby newspaper as a secretary, and uncredited reporter sometimes, who was a bomb girl during the war. Father will be a former law student turned former Army Air Corps bomber pilot turned lawyer with eyes on the local Judgeship in the future. So pressure from one parent, the father, to be more and more the all American girl (in no small part to help his own image in the community), and secretly under pressure from the other parent to dream whatever life she can dream of.
Oh, and she loves black leather and rock n' roll. Naturally. ^_^ Even if from afar so her father doesn't hurt her.
So, there you go. My basic concept I need to turn into a CS.
