Beyond the Book: The Captain and the Cheerleader: Famous Last Words

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. Kurt went 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. He is about to lose his Friday night ball game when a boy interrupted him. The boy had a football play from Susan that won the game for him. Kurt is pondering that play when Alicia calls and cancels their date for that night. Kurt decides to ask Susan to go with him so he can ask her about that play, and afterward Susan calls her friend Melissa.

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.


“Where’s he taking you?”

“Some friend of his is giving a party, and he asked me to go.”

Melissa giggled. “Have a good time, but you’d better behave yourself. I saw how you were watching him last night. I think you liked what you saw.”

Susan rolled her eyes even though Melissa couldn’t see. “Of course, I did. What’s not to like? Kurt’s absolutely gorgeous.”

“I noticed. Whew, this conversation could get out of hand. Behave now, you hear?”

“He invited me to a party for goodness sake.” Susan absently stroked Samson who had jumped up on the table. “The worst that can happen is we won’t have a good time together.”
