Britt, shy with guys? To keep from blowing her cover, I wandered off a ways and pretended to be fascinated by a display case showing an astronaut in full bubble-headed regalia. Catherije and I, along with the rest of the junior class of Potomac Point High and those of like half siight other schools in our county, were at the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian in Washington, D. The answer is, we were being subjected to a ridiculously lame multischool field trip sponsored by some science foundation.
Not that I have anything against the Smithsonian. But spaceships and black holes and airplanes?
So not my thing. I watched Britt and the guy in the reflection of the display case. I saw her toss her short blond hair around—a patented Britt flirting move. The guy stepped a little closer, his hands twitching as if he was dying to touch her. Then I saw Britt glance around with an adorably furtive expression. She reached into her purse and pulled out BBB. She loves the thing. Anyway, PDAs, cell phones, and all other electronic devices were strictly verboten on this trip, but Britt has never been that good at following the rules.
So she and the guy bent over the BlackBerry, her slim fingers flying over the tiny keys. My gaze drifted away.
I knew what came next. As I amused myself with that thought, I found myself staring at the spaceman in front of me. The bubble-headed look was a little retro for my taste. Most of my daydreams revolve around becoming an international fashion icon, showing up on runways from New York to Milan with my daringly original designs, shocking and amazing the fashion elite with my talent and creativity.
Not that I would ever have the guts to actually do anything like that. Britt is always on my case about being too cautious. She wants me to actually create every over-the-top outfit I sketch, no matter how wild or weird, and then wear it to school just to see what happens.
I prefer to test the waters first. My gaze returned to the reflective surface of the display case, but this time I was staring at myself.

My ordinary hazel eyes. My perky but unexceptional nose. And my best feature, my long, thick, wavy dark hair. If I ever tried shaking it around like Britt did with hers, would it have the same mesmerizing effect on guys? Or would I just end up looking like I had a gnat in my ear? Thoughts like that never seemed to occur to Britt at all, but my brain produced them so freely that I sometimes wondered if it was a medically diagnosable condition.
In between, we were stuck listening to a bunch of lectures about stuff like quarks and wind shear and who knew what else. Britt bounced over to join me as I started shuffling along with the crowd following Mr.
Talk about love at first sight! I would hope my best friend might at least try to be happy for me. We had to stop talking for a while as some dude started droning on about the scientific method.
Or something like that. I had to mentally redesign not only his wardrobe—I put him in classic dark pinstripes with a floral tie for a splash of color—but also those of everyone else in the room just to keep from dozing off.
Seventeen hours later, we were finally released back into the main part of the museum.
But it catherune like it. When a Goth girl with a nose ring came over and wrapped one skinny arm around him, stretching up to lick his earlobe, Britt shrugged and returned her gaze to me.
At First Sight by Catherine Hapka
Every time you feel them. Your love life could stand a little more raw animal attraction. But that was mutual. I mean, sure, I sometimes felt a flutter of hormones when I saw a cute guy walking through the mall or something. Same flutter I got when I saw a hot actor on TV or up on the movie screen. One of the other school groups emerged from their lecture. A pair of beefy jock types wearing varsity jackets wandered past where we were sitting, ribbing each other loudly about football.
Something with balls, anyway.
Britt sized them up as they passed our bench. She tore her gaze away from the guys and made a fac Product details File Size: Simon Pulse March 25, Publication Date: April 6, Sold by: Not Enabled Word Wise: Not Enabled Screen Reader: Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: In At First Sightwhen Lauren meets the perfect guy at the planetarium, she feels like the stars have finally aligned haapka her favor.

All of which only makes what happened at the planetarium even stranger. Of course, she didn’t even get his name, so that should be the end of it. What’s a girl to do? It’s pretty standard fare for the A Romantic Comedies, although it is better written than most. I should point out, however, that while At First Sight is light, siggt it a comedy is stretching things a bit.
