Penny is a schoolgirl investigative journalist in search of a story. A boy at her school who is painfully love-shy is surely the perfect subject for a feature article—what could go wrong?
Penny Drummond aspires to be a prize-winning journalist. In the meantime, she's honing her skills on the East Glendale Secondary College Gazette. When she discovers a boy at her school is posting anonymous messages on loveshy.com, Penny believes she has found just the story she needs. Her mission: find him, fix him, feature-article him. Next stop: Pulitzer Prize. But what will become of her journey-of-the-soul article if the love-shy boy is not who she expects? And what if Penny finds that her soul might be in need of a little attention as well? Love-Shy is a lively, entertaining, and warm-hearted romantic comedy filled with serious secrets, ambitious plans, awkward moments, and unexpected friendships.
