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.

I'm sorry for advertising but I'm desperate. I write fanfiction, and I take requests. If I get to 75 followers by the end of summer, I'm going to wear a tiara to school for the first day, and I'll take pictures. Please follow!
Like why do I feel it's Landon's mom from A Walk To Remember trying to teach her son how to behave around ladies? 90s books are damn amazing and so is yours..

This happens to me whenever anyone calls me to just chat. That's why I always just text everyone xD

Reading the description I was sorta iffy about a book set in the 90s but the first chapter wasn't bad whatsoever! I'm excited to keep reading.
