The Blindsided Tour

Guess what, guys? We have mail!

In celebration of Kyra Lennon's Blindsided tour, we've been sent a message from one of her characters. How cool is that? :)

Have you ever made a mistake so big, you wish you could take it back? I did, this summer. People say that being really drunk isn’t a good excuse for doing stupid things, but I disagree. Throw in upset and annoyed, and that is a recipe for messing things up. The only person I told was Isabelle, and I sort of regret that too. Not that I don’t trust her, she’s my twin sister, I’d trust her with my life. But that’s how terrible my mistake was. Nobody should ever find out.

I don’t think about it much anymore because I don’t want it to take over my life. I’ve moved on. Besides, it’s almost Christmas, and who wants to be dragged down at this time of year? I’ve got so much to look forward to! My best friend, Mischa, is planning a huge end of term party for all her college mates, and it is going to be amazeballs! Plus, parties mean shopping. I have no idea what I want to wear, but Mischa has her outfit all picked out. The outfit intended to turn some unsuspecting guy into her latest boy toy. Honestly, she’s been through at least five of the boys in our Psychology class, plus a few others she met on nights out. She’s got that special vibe about her that guys are attracted to. I guess having enormous boobs helps too. Whatever, I just sit back and watch – she’s great entertainment, even if she is a bit shallow and mean sometimes...

I better go.

  Blindsided Synopsis:  
 
After a successful first soccer season in L.A, Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, Hunter, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationship with Hunter’s cousin, Isabelle.

Isabelle Mills lives in Notting Hill with her parents and her twin sister, Georgia. When she finds out her cousin is coming to stay, along with his famous soccer player friend, her first instinct is to hibernate until they’ve gone. However, once she meets Jesse, everything changes. He’s everything she ever wanted, but with so many obstacles in their path, can she really risk putting her heart on the line?

Why thank you, Mark! You're the very first person to wish me a happy nearly next year birthday. :D
