Player (plus: Ally Has Amnesia)

(It’s a standalone novel with a bonus
story: “Ally Has Amnesia”)


name is Dane McGraw, but he’s known as “The Player.” He was called that even
before I became his very first girlfriend—back in MIDDLE school. But that
was years ago. He’s forgotten all about me … right? Well, that’s what I thought
when I started spreading my lies about us—on the Internet. He moved away
and he’s all famous now, so I thought he would never know that I made him my
new fake boyfriend. And said he adores me and brings me flowers.… Until he
shows up at my door—with flowers (!!) …Um?


my boyfriend dumped me for my total archenemy (Nina), to save face I posted on
my blog that I didn’t care because I had a date to our school dance with The
Player. I only did that because I knew my archenemy (Nina) wanted him, and my
ex-boyfriend (Back-stabber) was jealous of him. Two birds—one stone.
However, for some reason no one believed my crazy lies about The Player.
Probably because, you know, they were crazy lies—about The Player. But
whoa! Here he is, at my door for the dance—The Player. With that same ol’
player grin that has always played with my adoring heart. Yikes! I need a
player’s manual … and an ambulance. ‘Cause I’m swooning for the boy that broke
my heart. AGAIN!! (Help!)

spent the summer being a pool boy—and ogled by rich ladies. Wasn’t bad.
In fact, it was nice. The pay was good, and all I had to do was keep up the
maintenance on rich people’s pools.

the rich ladies’ eyes spark, and helped me rake in huge tips. (I guess I have a
nice smile.) (My bank account says so, anyway.) (Okay, and so do lots of
girls.) (Just sayin.’)

haven’t spoken since kindergarten. I hadn’t even been sure she remembered me,
but she’d been my first girlfriend and first kiss and we took naps together
during naptime all that year, even though our teacher had moved our mats to the
opposite sides of the classroom from each other. I’d sneak over to her mat
every time our teacher wasn’t looking.

first week back to school after summer vacation caused a commotion in my confused
heart. Especially due to the fact that a boy from my band class, Ethan Philips,
all of a sudden had some type of infatuation with me. The weird thing about it is,
I sort of had a crush on him last year, but he hadn’t really ever paid any
attention to me. Obviously the summer had done something weird to him. All the
sudden he popped up everywhere at school that I was, and walked me to all my
classes, and stared at me all during band like I was the most gorgeous creature
he ever laid eyes on.

admittedly, I was getting that from a lot of guys this year—so I couldn’t
really narrow the phenomenon down to just Ethan.

mean, even gorgeous Rider Hanson had eyed me like I was candy. Rider Hanson!!
The gorgeous boy hadn’t even
at me since kindergarten. But he sure looked at me this week—couldn’t
take his eyes off me, in fact….

at least that’s the way he made it

Rider is a player. The school’s worst heartbreaker, as far as I’m concerned.

. (!!) He had
loved me fiercely all year, then dropped me like a hot-potato with absolutely
no warning. None. And then he immediately went on to love some other girl. That
incident—him (Rider)—what he did to my mushy little girl
heart—and having it happen so early in my social career—he put me
down a vulnerable path for the rest of my school days and beyond. Whacked me
over the head way too early in life with the cold, hard truth: A guy can make
you feel like the world’s most special being on the planet … and then he can
just stop.

left me knowing right from that very first year of school—my heart is extremely
fragile and vulnerable. And someone you love dearly can break your heart, and
not even have a good reason why. In fact, not have a reason at all—except
that he loved someone else suddenly … and then someone else … and someone else.

was a painful lesson.

I mostly learned from the experience though is: Rider Hanson is a heartbreaker.

this week didn’t count. (Well, I tried not to let it count.)

Ethan from band class was different. He was “normal.” Not the school’s
heartbreaker. He was someone that—last year—I had thought I could
put trust in, and give my heart to. But no. Last year he had no interest in me.
None whatsoever.

this year—well, totally different story. He was forever finding excuses
to call me, and hinting about us getting together, but he never came right out
and asked me for a date. I was relieved about that because I wasn’t really sure
how I felt about him anymore. I kind of liked all of his attention, but it also
made me feel weird. I mean he hadn’t even acknowledged my existence last year.
I wondered what great feat I had unknowingly accomplished that suddenly made
him so attentive.

to be fair, a
of boys were
suddenly attentive. But I hadn’t really been paying attention to them, so it
was more okay that they never paid any to me.

one boy did—but he was off limits. So, he didn’t count either. (Well, he
counted more than Rider. But
counted more than Rider.) (Well, I wished.)

other boy—the off-limits one—he used to be my twin brother’s best friend.
But now he’s my friend’s
So, you see why he doesn’t count right? But at least
attention started last year—before every guy on earth
suddenly seemed to give me a second look. He (Drew is his name, by the way)
gave me that second look last year, though I’d had a crush on him forever. (A
secret crush.) (One I had on him way,
before my friend Laurie noticed him and deemed him worthy of her attention and,
soon after, the title “boyfriend.”) I’d had my deep, dying, secret crush on
Drew since I was a little kid. In fact, I got my crush on Drew the exact moment
I finally gave up on my painful unrequited (anymore) love of Rider—in the
third grade. Yes, it took from kindergarten to the
grade to get over Rider. And then it was just because he
moved away.

had loved that boy (Rider) fiercely, and he had loved me the same way.

then he had gone on to break my heart and then a string of other girls’ hearts.
Total. Heartbreaker.

sweet Drew wasn’t the same as Rider. At all. Drew had always seen me as a
sister, since my brother, Nick, had been like a brother to Drew. So, I just
came along with the package. I was Drew’s sister. It was enough for me. I
adored it actually. Being considered as part of Drew’s family. Well, maybe I
was considered that more by his
family. I used to baby-sit his little brothers and sister a lot. They adored
me—even if Drew’s affection hadn’t been quite that strong … or, okay,
strong at all.

that changed!!


okay I know I’ve thrown a lot of guys at you, but how do you think
felt?— suddenly having
guys throwing themselves at
? I
wasn’t used to it. At all.

I’ll give you a re-cap of the guys going on in my mind that first week of
school (though two of them I was trying
to think about—and the third one I wasn’t quite sure was
thinking about).

here’s the list. There was: Heartbreaker Rider, Band-Boy Ethan, and Off-Limits

going to go on to tell you about Off-Limits Drew first because—well, I
just am.
