“Tomboy to the core, Toni Valentine understands guys. She’ll take horror movies, monster hunts and burping contests over manicures. So Toni is horrified when she’s sent to the Winston Academy for Girls, where she has to wear a skirt and learn to be a “lady” while the guys move on without her. Then Toni meets Emma Elizabeth, a girl at school with boy troubles, and she volunteers one of her friends as a pretend date. Word spreads of Toni’s connections with boys, and she discovers that her new wealthy female classmates will pay big money for fake dates. Looking for a way to connect her old best friends with her new life at school, Toni and Emma start up Toni Valentine’s Rent-A-Gent Service.  But the business meets a scandal when Toni falls for one of her friends–the same guy who happens to be the most sought-after date. With everything she’s built on the line, Toni has to decide if she wants to save the business and her old life, or let go of being one of the guys for a chance at love.”


Champ: the monster lurking beneath the surface of Lake Champlain?

You’ve probably heard of Nessie, the lake monster of Scotland. Well, there’s also Champ, the monster lurking beneath the surface of Lake Champlain, which borders Vermont. The lake extends into Canada and New York, plenty of room for a giant water monster to live, and he (or she) is practically immortal, if you believe the legend. Champ is a popular tourist attraction in Burlington, Vermont. There have been over 300 sightings of Champ since the 1800s, the more recent accompanied by blurry photographs and videos.
Of course, people offer up explanations for such sightings. Maybe people are misidentifying another animal. Maybe they’re just seeing a log. Or maybe those photos and videos are fake, hoaxes. There’s got to be some sort of explanation for a gigantic water serpent thing, right? Like Nessie, Champ remains a mystery. Who knows what is really lurking beneath the lake’s surface, but it’s fun to guess.
