"I want you," Mr Ross said slowly as he paced and the room, "to come up with a piece of prose taken from a famous author. But." He stopped, "I want you to add your own spin to it." He looked at the class and smiled, "you have two minutes." We all got to it. 

After two minutes he called out 'times up.' He scanned the class to pick his victim and finally settled on, "Noah." He looked unbothered as he lifted his head up from the table. "Read yours out please." He signalled to the piece of paper in front of him. 

Still, unbothered he picked up the paper and cleared his throat. He glanced at me then began, "Lilo... light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lee-Low: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of two steps down the palate to tap, at two, on the teeth. Lee. Low. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing five feet six in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Willa at school. She was Willow on the dotted line. But in my arms, she was always... Lilo." He finished with a blank expression on his face, turned his head to look at me then rested it back onto the desk. 

The whole class stared at me but I couldn't help but stare at him in awe.

  {this extract has not been published but will be in the upcoming weeks}
- this book is berry humorous. The extract makes it seem like it's not. 
Also, NOT A CLICHÉ LOVE STORY.

- All characters and sub characters you will meet are of different races unless described to be Caucasian #weneeddiversebooks. 

- Sidenote: I've lived in England practically all my life so trying to write American English can be hard. sorry :)

- PLEASE read the author's note instead of commenting and trying to make me appear to be stupid because I won't hesitate to make you feel stupid yourself :)
  

- Cover made by the bootiful @moonxriver, I can't thank you enough❤
