Voted "Most Likely to Join the Circus" consecutively by Killian High's past three 2009-2011 published yearbooks, and as said by practically every person in the entire school, Derek Wells is the school's ultimate class clown. Seriously, if you're ever in need of a good laugh just go to him and he'll have you clapping your hands and shaking with quiet laughter like some dumb seal. 

The biggest joke of all to him was love. What was that? It was just some mushy, four-letter word that somehow could make a girl either swoon or cry or slap you in the face depending on the circumstances. 

So when Derek puts on his newly-acquired glasses for the first time in school, he doesn't expect to see Gwen, one of his closest friends, in a completely different light. Suddenly when she smiles, it feels as if something is crawling around in his stomach  and he isn't sure if it's the suspicious crab he had for dinner the night before or gas.

When Derek confesses his feelings to her, of course she's going to take it as one big joke. It seems that "the funniest kid in the school" can't say those three words without having someone wait expectantly for the punch line.  

Will Derek prove to Gwen that he can be serious when he needs to be? Or will she just wind up laughing in his face?

    That's juxtapositioning 😊 my English teacher would be proud

    So, does that mean it's okay for me to laugh when it's serious?
    He's actually the first character I've read who isn't cocky😃
