He knows what she is . . .

Intriguing and deeply romantic, RUA is page-turning YA novel with a supernatural twist.

 Miranda Kavi was kind enough to do a guest post for me! It is told from Tink's POV!

Tink, the Ultimate BFF

People seem to be curious about Tink. He’s the best friend of the lead character, Celeste. He’s fabulous, supportive and smart.

I adore Tink. He is near and dear to my heart since he is inspired by the amazing friendships that I am so lucky to have in my life.

I thought it would be fun to write a scene from Celeste’s first day of school from Tink’s point of view.

. . . .


Another boring lunch in my boring school in my boring town.

I load up my tray with the rubbery looking burger and a double order of soggy school cafeteria fries. Not the healthiest, but I’m a total carbivore.

A flash of deep red curls catches my eye. The new girl. She’s just managed to escape the wrath of Jennifer and her high-fashion clique.

Poor thing.

I’m not the only one watching her. She’s the second new student in just a few months, an oddity in our small town. Their eyes roam over her wild hair, scarves and vintage sneakers like she’s some sort of exotic bird on display.

You can already see the wheels turning behind their dull little eyes: New girl, pretty, strange, different. They don’t want to like her. They won’t like anything that’s not just like them.

I would know.

Edith nudges me. “Look. Rylan’s sitting close to her.”

“He’s got a pulse then. Good to know.” I turn my back on her to grab a juice. I’m surprised, too. He’s kept to himself, barely speaking to anyone.  

“She’s staring at him!” Edith cuts in front of me to pay the cashier first. “Just gawking at him in the open like that.”

“Um, so are we. He’s hot.”

I walk away from Edith and her mountain of food.

I find a table and settle in to devour my tasty carbs. The football players are clustered around the other end of the long table.

This isn’t my wisest seating choice. They’ve been picking on me since eighth grade, but I won’t let them intimidate me. Plus, it’s right next to the table with the new girl and I’m just as curious as everyone else.

One of the buffoons raises his voice to a fake feminine pitch. “Oh, Tink. You look so fabulous today. Smooch!” He blows a big kiss my way. They all burst into laughter.

I smile but say nothing. I can feel the heat rising through my neck, but I control my face, casually taking a bite of a fry.

The new girl is at the next table over. I watch her pick at her food, glance at Rylan and back to her plate. She looks lonely.

I leave the primates behind, grab my tray and slide in across from her before I can even think about it. I shove my hand in her face.

“Hi, new girl! I saw you sitting alone, and we can’t have that. What’s your name? I’m Tony, but people call me Tink around here.” The words tumble out of my mouth.

Her face lights up in a friendly smile. She takes my offered hand and shakes it vigorously. “Hi, Tink, I’m Celeste.”
