In my fanfic, most of the characters are 15-16, except for a couple of seniors. I think I got the teen characteristics right, you know, the angst, insecurities, impulsiveness, etc. But when they talk they sound like little adults. Any advice on how to make the dialogue more realistic? Aditional info: The story takes place in 2001-2002, so obviously the slang is different. Given that I'm not American, I'm going to need help on that too (I'm getting old so I don't even remember how MTV teens talked back in the day, lol).
