The shy ones are diamonds in the rough.

QUINN THOMPSON

When I walk into a room, the popular kids whisper about me. I don’t own designer clothes or name-brand shoes. I don’t wear low-cut shirts or tons of makeup either. I’m as plain Jane as a girl can get. I live on a farm, where the uniform of the day is boots, jeans, and a T-shirt unless it’s winter; then I trade my T-shirts for heavy sweaters and a parka. Baggy is my style.

But I’m considered one of the nerds in school for reasons besides my wardrobe. I have my nose in books while the popular girls have their noses up jocks’ butts. I do everything I can to avoid the in crowd at Kensington High—until a new boy waltzes in. He’s tall like my brothers, handsome like Zach Efron, and disrupts my belief that boys only want one thing. My only problem is he’ll never notice me, not if my arch-nemesis has any say.

MAIKEN MAXWELL

Basketball has been my life until my dad died. I’m trying not to get depressed, but it’s hard to breathe sometimes. He’ll never cheer from the stands at any of my basketball games or shout at me to shoot that three-pointer. I promised him I would step up if anything happened to him, and now it’s time to be the man of the house.

Only I’m torn between playing for the Kensington High basketball team and finding a job—until the girl with butterscotch hair snags my attention. She’s pretty, quirky, and her presence takes my mind off my troubles. Above all else, she makes me feel things that I’ve never felt before. In my mind, girls are just a distraction. They’re nice to look at, they talk too much, and they’re extremely pushy. Yet Quinn Thompson might change my opinion that all girls are created equal.

About the Author

Navy veteran S. B. Alexander, also known to many as Susan, grew up playing and watching sports. But if you ask her what her favorite sport is, she'll tell you hands down it's baseball. She grew up collecting baseball cards, watching the Boston Red Sox, and playing the sport with the boys in her neighborhood, which was how her bestselling Maxwell series started-with a high school girl who plays boys' baseball. While sports can be found in most of her books along with military heroes, you'll also find suspense, family drama, angst, and romance.

Aside from her love for sports, you might find her devouring a bag of white powdered donuts and buying handbags like they're going out of style. In fact, her husband calls her the bag lady. When she's not writing, she's a full-time caregiver to her soul mate of twenty years who got a bad deal in life when he was diagnosed with ALS. Their motto: "Life is too short to waste. So live every moment like it's your last."
