8 Sentence Sunday #20

Posted Sep 14 2014, 7:30 am in , , , , ,

Although I just got you all interested in Her Best Shot, I’m moving on to Her Perfect Game (Hot & Nerdy 2), which will release at the end of October. In this scene, Charlie is on the phone with Layla and Felicity as they try to convince her to join them on a spring break vacation:

                             If she’d told them Ethan had dumped her, they would demand she come to spring break. If she went on the trip, they would find out that she’d dropped out of school.

                             Plus, she needed to go to the convention. The hackfest called to her. The prize money would set her straight for months. It would also be her ticket to Def Con in the summer. Adding the hackfest win to her résumé might even help her get a real job. Anything to get her life moving again.

    Tough decision for her. I agree with the “if” clauses. I wonder what she’ll do.

    I don’t know what hackfest is, but it didn’t stop me enjoying this snippet! She seems to be in quite a dilemma!

  3. Evelyn Jules says:

    Spring break with her girlfriends would definitely be a good stress relief, but money makes the world go ’round. Nice snippet!

  4. Hackfest as in computer hacker? What kind of a job is she looking for?
