The Final Entry (Entry 34)

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?

  7. It should be made into a movie, I wouldn't change a thing. When Cade was telling you from the balcony how he felt when you two broke up, I was seeing 'Jerry McGuire', the movie, I had chills down my spine. You two make an incredibly great couple, I just did the math, 10 years, 5 kids...like I said great couple!!!

    Yeah, we had three kids by the time I was 21. That was pretty fast. We only got to keep 2 of those 3 though. That almost ripped me apart when Zeke died when I was only 20.
    But our other four are all so much fun. I have to say I'm glad we're done having kids. They keep me sooo busy!
