#SixSunday - Wasn't This Just Perfect?


Happy Sunday Sixers! Thanks for stopping by.  I always appreciate the comments and encouragement. I look forward to hopping around to other blogs and reading what other talented authors have shared!  

I'm continuing with my YA Paranormal book, ONCE AND FOR ALL, the sequel to ONCE AGAIN, which is now available (links to the right), and was reviewed recently at Night Owl Reviews! ONCE AND FOR ALL follows Phoebe Campbell and Todd Miller as they encounter their own reincarnation mystery.

If you've followed any of my previous sixes about Phoebe and Todd, you know that Phoebe is anything but "popular" and Todd is the epitome of the high school jock. Their worlds might never have collided had they not been paired to work together on a project for art class. As they work together, Todd and Phoebe begin to see past the preconceived notions they had about each other. But just as Phoebe is warming up to Todd (and by warming up, I mean responding to him the way a girl responds to a boy who kissed her the day before!), Todd reverts to his old ways... at least temporarily. Today's snippet gives us a glimpse into Phoebe's feelings when she sees Todd at school, with his arms around another girl.

He hadn't seen me yet, and no wonder. He was all wrapped up in Tina Parker, one of the cheerleading bobbleheads who walked around school like they were God's gift to spandex.

I should go... just turn and go to class and chalk this up to a lesson well learned. But instead, I just stood there, watching as Tina played with the collar of Miller's shirt and his arm snaked around her back, pulling her closer to him. Beside him, Shane and Collin carried on what was surely a deep and intelligent conversation with Erica Moore, another one of the bobbleheads.

Wasn't this just perfect?

  1. I'll admit it, I was friend with one of the cheerleaders while I was in high school, but she was a genuinely nice and level headed girl. The rest were, as you put it, cheerleading bobbleheads. Excellent six!

    1. I know what you mean! I try not to play too much into the stereotype, so there is a cheerleader character named Jade who is a nice, normal girl! She made an appearance in book 1 and will pop up in book 2 as well!

  2. Oh, I can so understand her frustration. I wish I could jump in there and tell her that all these bobbleheads will be nobodies after graduation. Can't wait to see where this goes, as I'm a product of "The Breakfast Club" era. :)
