Coming soon! My sister’s Bestie

Brenda Umeh is in a bit of a pickle. She can’t stop thinking about the geeky older brother of her best friend, even though they are so different and according to a dating app, totally incompatible ??

Here’s an excerpt from chapter Two


Is it possible that we … he and I? …

I shake my head, halting that thought immediately. 

No need for foolishness. He’s Ugo for goodness’ sakes. He barely says a word to me. I’d drive him crazy with all my talking. 

We’re from different worlds. 

My mother would never approve. 

Plus, he’s not even my type. 

He’s short.

But just as tall as you.

 I grip the toothbrush and turn it on, letting the vibrating sound tune out the voice in my head.

He’s skinny and ugly.

Liar. Liar. You know you’ve always thought of him as ruggedly handsome and athletic.

He’s poor.

Aha. Wrong. A self-made hard worker. Not a daddy’s boy like you’re used to.

No matter how many times I shake my head, I can’t seem to silence the voice inside, chronicling my shallow dating history.
I could write a blog called Brenda’s Bad News—all about the idiots I’ve dated. And I wouldn’t run out of material for ages. 


Please tell me what you think of Brenda from this short peek into her mind ??

She’s definitely not boring, I tell you. Fingers crossed, you’ll enjoy the characters as much as I did creating them.
