When the new doctor’s family moves in across the street, Glen is happy to show the son, Charlie, around the small town. With his good looks, charisma, athletic ability, and sports car, Charlie soon has the whole town in his corner.
Except Nicole, the prettiest girl in town (and the pastor’s daughter), who has no intention of dating Charlie. No matter how often he asks her. Or Luke, Glen’s best friend since kindergarten, who dislikes Charlie on sight and longs to wipe that smile off his face!
As Glen sidesteps the hostility between Luke and Charlie and assists Charlie in his quest to date Nicole, he faces major problems–some life-threatening, others life-changing.
He wanted to know about girls–were there any he hadn’t met yet? I really couldn’t think of any. Well, just a couple who I didn’t think he’d be interested in–one girl who never takes part in anything, and Zoey Burgess, who wears glasses and is kind of chubby and sort of plain. Girls seem to like her, but I’ve never noticed any guys that were at all interested.
And then I remembered her. Why I hadn’t before, I don’t know. She’s everything Charlie could want, and no doubt she’d like him, too. At least, she might. With her, you never can tell.
Charlie noticed that I’d stopped talking. “What are you thinking about? Remember somebody?”
I didn’t know whether to tell him or wait until he spotted her himself. I decided to wait. “Nothing special. If I’ve missed anyone, you’ll soon find out.”
