Beyond the Book

Hello, and welcome to Beyond the Book. I've been sharing excerpts from The Captain and the Cheerleader. I'm picking up where I left off last week. Robin Lanford who's a royal pain in the butt just bet Susan English that she couldn't get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach. Some of the other faculty members also got in on the bet. Kurt showed up and Susan asked about the football game later that night. Now, Susan is at home with her cat thinking about the bet.

Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.


A new thought suddenly struck her. “Goodness, Samson. Maybe he really won’t be interested in me.”

Samson meowed his opinion that Kurt would be interested, so Susan kissed the top of his head to thank him for his support and gave him a can of tuna before she went to get ready for the football game.

If only she hadn’t made that horrible bet! Guilt swamped her. At the moment I don’t feel too good about myself. Maybe I should cancel the bet. No! If I do, Robin’ll never let me hear the end of it. Next time she’d refuse to let Robin get her dander up, but this time she intended to show the little witch a thing or two.
