High school in the early 90s: it was before cell phones and social media, but the problems were the same.  How do you get the guy you're interested in to notice you?   What happens if you fall in love with your best friend?  Why does physics class keep factoring into your love life?

This novella is loosely based on my own high school experiences... but sort of an alternate version of them.  You can only make one set of choices in life, so it's fun to explore what could have been - but wasn't - in fiction.  Also, set in 1991-92, this is kind of a period piece now!  In some ways it's a love letter to the teen books I read back in the 80s and 90s, in particular those by Ellen Conford and Paula Danzinger.  I hope you enjoy it.

Yeah a relationship could be fun. For awhile. but if they break up just imagine the damage to their friendship. No more best friend.
