The Cliff (Entry 24)

This post has been removed for the novel's debut in April, 2012 . . .


    Elisa isn't your regular nerd.  She's not the kind of person who quotes Monty Python, or has a periodic table tattooed on her butt.  No she's a different sort altogether.  She carries a duct-taped Bible everywhere, wears bright-orange polyester pants, and dyes her hair with red kool-aid.
    Even though she tries slipping by apart from the crowds, it doesn't help that her best friend happens to be "The Boarder," one of the cutest and most popular boys in school.  He's not willing to let her go unnoticed—not until she goes to the homecoming dance with another guy.
   "The Boarder" starts acting weird after the date goes well, and Elisa begins wondering if he's only been looking at her as a friend or maybe something more.  She must choose between her best friend and "The Bad Boy," but will she make the right choice?


  1. I'm so glad The Boarder was there for you!...and that you didn't let yourself fall off the edge.

    And yes, thank you, I'm doing much better today.

  2. Yikes. Isn't it amazing how certain people come into your life for a reason then go away just as quietly as they came? Great post as usual.

  3. Do you believe in Angels? I think you have one that has always been watching over you. More than likely you have more than one now.
