The Blurb

Sometimes looks can be deceiving

Annabel’s not surprised when nobody recognises her at her 10 year reunion. The spotty fat teen nicknamed AnnaBall by the school bullies is long gone. But standing on the edge of the popular crowd, she still feels like that girl. That is, until Jack, her teen crush, starts flirting with her. Much to her amusement, he has mistaken her for Christy Blake, Annabel’s chief tormenter before she moved to France in their last year.

It’s just a bit of fun at first, letting Jack believe she’s Christy. After all, he was nuts about her before she said au revoir to England. And when he asks Annabel out, the fun becomes something even more interesting. The more they date the deeper they fall for each other. So what if Annabel has to fib a little to keep up the façade?

As the lies start compounding, and she realises that they’re falling in love, she has to tell him who she really is. But she’ll lose the love of her life if she does.

The Review

Weightless is a classic story of mistaken identity. Think a modern day Shakespearean tale.

At her 10 year high school reunion Annabel is shocked to find herself on the receiving end of her high school crush’s attentions. There is only one problem with this and that is he thinks she is someone else. Namely, Annabel’s old high school bully, Christy.

As Annabel’s web of lies gets bigger and bigger she finds herself falling more and more in love. Can she save the relationship or is she destined to lose the man she loves.

Weightless is a fun short story. It resonates with us all who dread going to the reunions with our high school classmates because we all want to impress. I think the lesson I have learned from Weightless is just to avoid reunions at all costs!
