Hotline Girl by K. Dawn Byrd

Back Cover Blurb
When the school counselor asks Abby to work a counseling chat line, she begs her to choose someone else. When Race, Abby's three-year crush, begins using the chat line to talk about his girlfriend problems, can Abby be impartial when she really wants to tell him to dump her?

Race notices Abby after she has a complete make-over. He begins to spend more time with her and feels like a cheater because he likes the hotline girl too. How can he like two girls at once?


Abby is thrilled when Race begins spending time with her, but she's crushed when he tells the hotline girl that he likes her and wants to take her out. Is he a player? Will he even want to be with her when he finds out that she is the hotline girl and knows all his deepest secrets?



Excerpt



I signed into the chat room and found SS2 RS waiting for me. HOTLINE GIRL HERE. WHAT'S UP? I asked.

I SENT YOU FLOWERS. DID YOU GET THEM? DO YOU LIKE THEM?

I leaned over and took a whiff. THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL. THANK YOU.

PROBABLY NOT AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT, BUT THANKS. (((BLUSHING)))

SS2 RS had been paging me a lot lately and the more time I spent with him, the more certain I was that he was Race. I'd asked a couple of times who he was and he'd refused to tell me. We were getting to know each other quite well and I wasn't sure how he felt, but the more I came to know him, the better I liked him. I just wondered if I could trust him. We were finding out that we had a lot in common. Our faith. Our love of sports cars. Our love of animals.

SOMETIMES, I STAND IN THE HALL AND WATCH GIRLS GO BY AND WONDER WHICH ONE IS YOU. CAN YOU AT LEAST TELL ME YOUR HAIR COLOR?

I contemplated my response. What would be the harm in that? There were dozens of blonde seniors. BLONDE.

AT LEAST NOW I CAN RULE OUT GIRLS WITH BLACK, BROWN, RED, AND PINK AND BLUE HAIR.

LOL. YOU'RE FUNNY.

NOT REALLY. I'M A PRETTY SERIOUS GUY MOST OF THE TIME. ARE YOU GOING TO THE GAME?

YES. YOU?

SINCE I PLAY, I DON'T HAVE MUCH OF A CHOICE.

I opened the notes app on my phone and typed in football player. I'd been keeping notes on him so I wouldn't forget anything, hoping I could play Nancy Drew and determine who the mystery guy was. GUESS I'LL SEE YOU THERE.

FUNNY. BUT, HOW WILL I SEE YOU? ARE YOU A CHEERLEADER?

NOPE.

OKAY. THAT RULES OUT A FEW MORE GIRLS. ONE DAY, I'M GOING TO FIGURE OUT WHO YOU ARE AND WHEN I DO, I'M GOING TO ASK YOU OUT.

FINE WITH ME, BUT WHAT ABOUT YOUR GIRLFRIEND? It was killing me not knowing for sure that he was Race. I know it was crazy, but I really liked him and I didn't even know his name. He might be Race, but then again, he might not be.


SHE'S GETTING READY TO DUMP ME. I JUST KNOW IT. I'M NOT HAPPY AND I KNOW SHE'S NOT EITHER, SO THE SOONER THE BETTER.
