So....get ready for the pretty!

6 guitar strings. 2 boys. 1 summer to let it all go.

The summer before college, Kate Watts wants to do three things: make music, hang out with her best friend Ashton, and scoop ice cream. With an ailing grandfather, a flaky mom who shows up once every who-knows-when, and a looming tuition bill to pay, Kate doesn't need any more complications.

But "complications" have a way of finding her.

Like when an infuriating new boy named Rory humiliates her at a party. 

Like when her wild cousin Paisley shows up unexpectedly at her doorstep to stay.

Like when she’s offered the chance of a lifetime–if she throws away the dream she’s been working for. 

Soon, straight-shooting Kate gets swept up in a whirlwind of parties with Paisley, all while falling for hot-and-cold Rory…until she begins to suspect that Rory and Paisley might be keeping a huge secret together. Will Kate have to leave everything behind to untangle the truth—including herself

And here's the novella cover...


Don’t waste your time worrying about it. You’re better than that.
Easy for Molly’s best friend Avery to say. She’s not the one who got dumped by Dave Chumski. In a text.

Dave Chumski, whose greatest goal in life is to “rule” at air hockey.

How can she not spend time thinking about Dave--especially when he and his new girlfriend keep popping up everywhere Molly goes? At school, at the arcade, at ValuMart. The universe seems to be telling Molly to hold on.

Plenty of fish in the sea. You just have to let go.
Easy for Avery to say, but—will Molly be able to let go of the past to see what’s standing right in front of her?

One Week is a companion short story to The Boyfriend Thief, the first book in Shana Norris’s Stolen Kiss collection.

About Shana
Most days, Shana Norris still feels like she’s stuck at sixteen, which is probably why she enjoys writing about teens. She has faced her fear of heights to climb to the top of Chimney Rock near Asheville, NC, but she isn't yet brave enough to go cliff-jumping into ponds. She lives in a small town in eastern North Carolina with her husband and small zoo of pets, which currently includes two dogs, five cats, and a flock of chickens.
 Shana Norris has entertained millions of readers as the author of Troy High, the popular Swans Landing series, and The Secrets Between You and Me, a companion book to The Boyfriend Thief and a part of the Stolen Kiss collection. Visit her online at
