Synopsis

How to Drop a Class (and Fall in Love) by Lisa Brown Roberts

Seventeen-year-old Darcy Covington doesn't know the difference between a pawn shop and a thrift shop. Even her dog eats gourmet food, so she's totally unprepared when her car is repossessed from the parking lot of her elite private school. Turns out her father, a semi-famous motivational speaker, has skipped town, abandoning his family while his business collapses. Desperate to sell her expensive jewellery for much-needed cash, Darcy discovers that her dad's brother runs a funky thrift shop on a street full of eccentric characters, including a coffee shop owner named Liz and one supremely hot fix-it guy named Lucas. Darcy finds some solace hanging out with her uncle and Lucas in the thrift shop and working in Liz's coffee shop, while the rest of her life falls apart. The time she spends with the uber hot Lucas helps takes her mind off her family's troubles, even though she's sure he's only nice to her because he works for her uncle, especially when she meets the cover girl beauty she thinks he's dating. Can Darcy find the courage she needs to adapt to the necessary changes brought about by her family's drastically reduced lifestyle? And will she open her eyes to the amazing realization that Lucas wants much more than friendship from her?

Reviews

A promising debut featuring a crackerjack heroine who doesn't need a hero to complete her sweet, rambling quest. Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Lisa Brown Roberts has held a variety of day jobs to support her writing habit, many of them involving writing, but not the fun kind. She currently works in higher education during the day and writes feverishly at 3:00 in the morning, on weekends, and any other time she can convince her family to go play outside and leave her alone. Except for the cats. They can stay, because every writer needs a cat (or two) on her lap.You can find Lisa on Twitter@LBrownRoberts or www.lisabrownroberts.com
