One of a Kind is a short story that takes place a year before Rumor Has It, and it’s finally available!
So, remember Emma talking about that cute boy she liked her junior year, Paxton? (What’s that? You haven’t read Rumor Has It? What are you waiting for?! It’s available on Amazon and free to read with Kindle Unlimited!) Anyways, Paxton was barely on two pages. But as soon as I wrote that small scene, I knew I needed to write a little more Paxton. So I did!
This short story takes place before Rumor Has It and offers no spoilers for any of the books that are out. And it is not going to be for sale. One of a Kind is exclusive to newsletter subscribers.
Here’s the synopsis for One of a Kind:
Paxton Humphries is Woodbridge High’s resident emo-art freak. He’s heard every barb and insult in the book and has learned to roll with the punches. Literally. His best friends know who he really is and that’s enough for him. Sure, it’d be great if braggadocious jocks like Will Jones didn’t make fun of him or always get the girl. Especially incredibly smart and cute girls, like Desiree Williams. A girl he was just about to ask out at the beginning of the year, before Will beat him to it.
Desiree tells everyone Will is nice. And he was, er, is. He can be nice. She should be happy, dating one of the most popular guys in school. So why has she found herself feeling much more comfortable talking and laughing with Paxton during their class, than when she’s actually with her boyfriend? And why can’t she stop staring at his lips or that lip ring?
