The Family (Entry 23)

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. Can you please post two times today?! I can't take the suspense...

    It is so hard for me to understand how such a lovely, kind soul could have to go thru what you did.

  2. Stephanie,
    You are soooo awesome. It means so much that you read these posts. Thank you. I need to find something that goes in the next post. I have to search everywhere for a poem which belongs in the next entry. ;)

  3. Hey E girl. Thanks for inviting us last night that was sooo much fun. Phil wants me to get that recipe from you because he loved it! As for your post I agree with Steph. Way to get your readers hooked there sunshine.
    Great job. Keep it up.

  4. It is terrible that your family turned their backs to you, at least that is what it sounds like to me. Sounds way to familiar.
