I got this idea from my writer-friend Rachel who got it from Stephanie Perkins so it’s totally legit. (I love Rachel’s writing so much, can’t wait for everyone to read it. And my love for Stephanie Perkins is legendary.) Check out Rachel’s love list. And Stephanie’s.
So, things that I love about this book I’m writing:
Characters who speak French to each other
A college program for high school students
A girl named Alice.
A girl named Abby.
A girl who refuses to swear except to say eff or merde.
Baseball loving family
Baseball hating main character
Baseball playing love interest
Dirty French movies (aren’t they all?)
The sadness of being a Cubs fan
A boy named Zeke
Le Petit Prince
Tu me manques
St Viateur Bagels
Silly drunks and sad drunks
Surprising trivia competitions
Even better subsequent kisses
This line: “Favorite new word: chatouilleux. Ticklish. Zeke est vraiment chatouilleux. Zeke is very ticklish.”
