Woman Crush Wednesday: Featuring Lisa Brown Roberts

Introducing Darcy Covington, heroine of HOW TO DROP A CLASS (AND FALL IN LOVE) by Lisa Brown Roberts

Thanks for stopping by, Darcy. After interviewing Lucas Martinez earlier this week, I wasn’t sure if you’d show.
Yeah…Lucas didn’t want me to come. But I thought I should.
So he’s the protective boyfriend type? Your knight in shining armor?
He’s not...we’re not…(takes a deep breath). He’s a friend. One of my only friends right now. We’re not, um, a couple.
You sure about that?
Look, I didn’t come here to talk about my love life.
So what do you want to talk about?
The truth. I’m sick of reporters making stuff up and spreading lies.
And what truth is that, Darcy?
About my dad. Everyone thinks he totally abandoned his company, and his family. Those stupid internet trolls are accusing him of embezzling a ton of money and fleeing the country. But he didn’t. I know he didn’t…
Where is he, Darcy? Have you talked to him?
(Long silence)
Darcy? A lot of people are looking for your dad. If you know where he is—
I don’t know where he is! But I know what kind of person he is. He’d never steal. And he wouldn’t just abandon my mom and me without a good reason. He’s coming back. I know he is.
David Letterman doesn’t think so. Did you see his Top 10 list of reasons why your dad bailed?
(Jumps up, knocking over chair.) Oh my God. Lucas was right! I never should’ve come here. You’re just going to spread lies about my dad like all the other reporters.
Darcy, wait, don’t storm off.
(Door slams.)
I can’t believe this. That’s the second time this week I’ve had a door slammed in my face.

HOW TO DROP A CLASS (AND FALL IN LOVE) by Lisa Brown Roberts releases in February 2015 from Entangled Teen.

Darcy Covington is completely unprepared when her car is repossessed from her elite private school and her new nickname, Repo Girl, goes viral.
