More Than A Pretty Face
Emma Reese's main worries used to be homework, feeding her cat and being able to find her Friends reruns in the DVR. That was until she decides to do something nice for the world, something you'd think she'd be rewarded for, but it seems karma was broken that day for when she offers to lock up the school library after hours she's stormed by five teenage delinquent boys. She thinks she has them bested as she runs away from the still unlocked library when once again life throws her another curveball. Rounding the corner on her way to her gran's house when the dark, mysterious, and somewhat handsome boy she thought she escaped cuts her off. Then, you know what they say; you can't ever just have one potato chip, Mr. Mysterious's friend magically appears not only stealing her backpack but also her freedom. They decide it'd be difficult to hide her body so what's the next best thing? kidnapping. Emma's whisked away from her simpleton life into one of what seems like life in a can. She's never felt more trapped yet somehow free.
Carter Tyler is a delinquent. A high schooler who'd somehow managed to work hard enough to graduate a year earlier than Emma and all of his crime thirsty friends even though he was the same age. His first time in the school library after four years of high school he thought would be boring, indifferent if you will. Instead, he somehow ends up home with a seemingly crazy girl and missing his first kiss. In Carter's eyes Emma, who had convinced him her name was Valerie, was weird beyond belief, yet he was somewhat drawn to her. He sees Emma as a judgmental nun who assumes that just because he's been to Juvie a time or two, hasn't ever kissed a girl. That just because he could have any girl in the school that he wanted, had never been on a date. He thought Emma saw him for his looks only, and for some odd reason, he wanted her to see him as more. He wanted to show her he had a heart along with Calvin Klein looks. That he was more than a pretty face.
