The journey into adulthood is stranger than she expects. A new adult science fiction fantasy.
Hetty Locklear lives in a nerd girl fantasy where she is the savior of a dying galactic people. When she's not role playing in the exotic game world she created, she dreams of being the new It Girl with suave clothes, hundreds of friends, hunks galore falling at her slippered feet, awesome parties, and a job to make every person in the cosmos drool.
Instead, she's stuck at the convenience store wearing stretchy clothes to fit over the paunch formed from a steady diet of donuts, soda, and coffee. And her social calendar echoes with crickets and dust bunnies, because she only has two friends - a cousin, who barely counts, and her best friend since grade school.
Hetty is banking on graduation from community college to transform her into a full-fledged woman. It doesn't. It gets her a humungous coffee stain down the front of her gown and an invitation from her parents to visit. Estranged since they went gallivanting off to fulfill their dream of working the Renaissance Faire circuit, Hetty isn't eager to see them. However, this trip may be the only chance she gets to repair the relationship.
A steamy romance with her boss or the handsome stranger she met at the coffee shop would cure her doldrums, but she's stuck with the annoying Sir Gnat and is stalked by a ghost. The invisible stranger leads her a reality she finds hard to believe. It also leads to love and a better relationship with herself.
