Friday Reads: Heather O’Neill

INT. SUBURBAN HOME – DAY
Alessandra, (24) enters the house. She brings in a carton of donuts and take-out coffee. Her Dad, (56) and Boyfriend, (28) are setting up for the men’s hockey Olympic gold medal game.

DAD
By the way, package came for you.
Did you order something?

BOYFRIEND
Jesus! You’re always ordering something!
(He sips his coffee and burns his tongue)

ALESSANDRA
I don’t know… I don’t think so?

Alessandra picks up a white  package and opens it. Inside is Heather O’Neill’s 2007 Canada Reads victor Lullabies For Little Criminals and an advance copy of the highly anticipated follow-up novel The Girl Who Was Saturday Night, along with a note from one of her favourite publishing secret agents

ALESSANDRA
Shut up!

She shoves Boyfriend and Dad with immeasurable force in a knee-jerk reaction, and fangirls for the rest of the day. Olympic hockey be damned, I’ll get the score between chapters.
