An unexpected shortcut leads to romance! (The story is a "Quick Pick" available for only $1.00!)

DiskUs Publishing
Books for Kids and Teens

With a little help from a class assignment, a sudden detour, and Jane Austen, Emily finds an unexpected romance with a most unlikely prospect.


Lucas saw me, caught up and touched my sleeve. He shouted to be heard in the hallway as noisy as falling barbells. “Emily, we need to talk!” He stepped back against a locker and pulled me aside.
I craned my neck to look up at a craggy sort of face that was already showing signs of becoming leathery. Bright blue eyes and amazingly white teeth almost jumped off his face in contrast. With my light brown hair and eyes and pale complexion I felt kind of blah in comparison.
I planned my pre-emptive strike. “I think we’ll need to read the book before we do anything. So next week is probably soon enough for us to start working on our assignment.”
“Well, sure,” said Lucas. Only he pronounced it “shore.” “But, you see, I’ve already--”
“I really have to run, Lucas,” I said quickly, making a big deal of looking at my watch. “I’ll talk to you next week, after--” I almost said Valentine’s Day. But I didn’t want to sound too...unscholarly. “...after school.”
Lucas rubbed his sharply squared-off jaw. “But--”
“I’ll miss my ride,” I said, already turning and heading down the hall. “I’ll talk to you next week!” I ran outside and jumped in Alicia’s car. She would never leave without me. But Lucas didn’t know that.
