“ ….the title of this book had me
expecting something very like a teen romance. While there is romance aplenty in
this wonderful novel, Girls Love Travis Walker is far more than that….
“Little did I know that what
I was about to read would have such a huge impact on me…. This book hit me
right in the heart.”
“I really loved
Travis…. I cried and was scared with him.”
“This book will make you fall in
love for so many reasons…”
Excerpt from Girls Love Travis Walker:
Only fifteen minutes since I’d
entered the halls of Perdido High School and already the beady eye of authority
was upon me. I hadn’t even done anything wrong.
“Travis!” Ms. Valenzuela called
out to me from the door of the guidance office. Although she was getting old,
maybe into her early forties, she hadn’t let herself go. She had great legs,
which were hidden today by her lime green pants.
“Yo.” I loped over and unleashed
a grin that combined sincere remorse for my failings with my irresistible

with me, Travis.”
I led the way to her office and
took my usual chair while she sat at the desk across from me. “New picture,” I

Ms. Valenzuela opened my folder.
“Six more absences since your last visit to my office. Plus numerous missed
homework assignments. You’re this close to suspension.” She held up her thumb
and index finger a millimeter apart.
“I have to work, Ms. Val,” I
said. “Gotta get ahead, you know.” I had a promising position as a bus boy at

“As many as I can get, whenever I
can get ‘em.”
“You can’t cut back?” She knew
she couldn’t push me that hard. My family’s sudden move to Los Angeles in
November of my junior year, coupled with my erratic attendance at Perdido High,
had screwed up my graduation credits. With all my former classmates in college,
I was starting my senior year, again, at age nineteen.
“I can’t get weekend shifts at
Jake’s,” I told Ms.Val.
She didn’t like me working there,
but she should just be glad I wasn’t following in the path of my father, who
knocked over a convenience mart a year ago and ended up in prison for armed
robbery. Mom had gone to visit him, but I refused. He could rot there for all I
“You’ve got one school year left
to graduate. I want to see you get that high school diploma, Travis. Or a GED
at least.” Between her fingers, she rolled a pen. It was the cheap kind the
school district bought that wrote for about five minutes before it crapped out
“Yeah, well, we’re about to get
evicted,” I said, “so that’s kind of rearranged my priorities.”

and work as a library volunteer at a local school. Her book Any Other Night has
been named a Finalist in both the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards and the
2013 National Indie Excellence Awards.
