The Possibilities of Amy has turned out to be popular with both the YA audience as well as adults. The story was inspired by a man I met at a high school reunion who was brave enough to reveal the truth – and the secrets – of those angst-filled years.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
Amy is the ultimate trophy girl—gorgeous face, killer body and a vivacious personality. But there’s something else about her, something that makes her even more special. Amy’s new. A transfer student from out of state, she’s starting her senior year without knowing a soul. And that means she’s up for grabs, available.
Infatuated from the moment he sees her, David is determined to meet Amy, and if the fates are willing, to spend the rest of his life with her. But his shyness prevents him from approaching her—until his friends devise a contest to determine who can be the first to prove their manhood by seducing her.
