Beyond the Book: The Captain and the Cheerleader

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, Kurt has gone to be with the football players before the game. He told his friend Jason that Susan had given him a compliment, and Jason reminded him that he already had a girl named Aleisha Childs. Kurt isn't sure if it's serious between them. In today's excerpt, Kurt is about to lose his Friday night ball game when someone interrupts him.

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.


Shoulders tense with excitement, Kurt jumped when a hand tapped his back. He spun around and snarled at the boy who stood there. “What do you want? Can’t you see I’m busy?”

The boy flinched, but he held his ground. “Miss English said to give you this and for you to look at it before the next play.”

“Who passes notes at a time like this? What does she think this is, study hall?” He crumpled the note, intending to fling it to the ground, but at the last moment something changed his mind, and he

unfolded the paper the boy had handed him. His jaw dropped when he saw the football play Susan had sketched out. Try this, he read. I think it will work.

It could work. Why not give it a try? At this point, they had nothing to lose. He called his last time out to give instructions to the team. Thank goodness for Ken Banks. The Mavericks had never had a better quarterback. With his guidance they might have a chance of successfully running this thing.
