Check out my book “Awkward”
Synopsis: Amelia “Lia” Hill is an 18 year old high school senior who has always done the right thing. She gets good grades, dresses appropriately and barely has a social life. As high school is ending, Lia decides she’s had enough. She wants to live her life on her own terms, and be young and dumb like the rest of her classmates, including her twin brother Aiydan. On her journey to freedom, her crush Tyler Smith starts appearing more, causing the most awkward moments in her life.
Teaser: Chapter 5
On the drive home, I tell Aiydan I’m going to the party. He was just as shocked as I was. My brother always encourages me to hang out with him and his friends. I just kept myself away. Nobody was ever mean to me in that group, but I think Tyler just made me to nervous to interact with them.
As we pull up to our driveway, I cant wait to get into bed, and watch a movie. I love watching movies, just like books, they take me to another world.
As I open the front door, I hear my mother’s favorite daytime soap opera in the background.
“Were home!” I yell loud enough so she can hear me.
“Good, go study, both of you,” She replies back
My brother and I burst into laughter. She’s on another level, I swear.
“Im hungry!” My brother yells to her.
“Okay, Go change ill warm up your food in a minute!,”
My brother smirks at me, knowing he’s a spoiled brat.
I open the door to my room, taking in how organized and clean everything is, just how I left it. I love cleaning, and I love being organized, its the one thing that keeps me sane. I place my bag on a hook, and change into comfy pajamas. I uncover my sheets, and slide into my bed.
“What movie should we watch today?” I ask myself.
As I browse through Netflix, I get a text from a random number.
Is this Amelia? the message says.
Depends, whose asking? I reply back
I almost have a heart attack and jump out of my bed. What do I respond? Why is he texting me? OMG is he gonna disinvite me from his party? Did he realize I was a loser?
This is Amelia.
Thats it? Thats all I can spit out?
Cool, I got your number from your brother, I just wanted to give you my address just in case you needed it lol
Oh okay. Thanks. My brother already gave it to me so I can give it to Naya.
Oh nice! Were u able to read more of your book?
Is he trying to talk to me? He probably feels like he has to continue, so I don’t feel bad.
That is my response.
Uhh are you okay? Did I do something?
WHAT IS HE TALKING ABOUT? Im so confused
Oh cuz ur typing in all periods, chicks usually do that when they’re annoyed haha
HES SO RIGHT!
Oh I didn’t even realize I was doing that!
Okay good I thought I did something!
What could you possibly ever do to me?
I put my phone on airplane mode and throw it on my bed along with my self. I scream into my pillow, praying this was all a dream. NOPE! Its reality.
I let 2 hours pass by, before I finally have the courage to take my phone off airplane mode.
I guess you’ll find out Saturday
What the fuck does that mean? Is he flirting with me? Hell no. Theres no possible way. This is all a big joke.
I force myself to go to sleep, or else ill be thinking about this all night.
