Milo was suddenly aware of Amanda tugging on his arm. She was guiding him toward the gym. “Come on,” she said, “we have to be back stage in ten minutes.”Read more >
Milo nodded. “OK,” he said. “We should get going, then.”
“Good luck, buddy,” replied Zack.
As Amanda led Milo away, he heard Melissa say, “Milo is definitely going to get on stage this year, I can feel it.”
Milo was suddenly aware of the fluttering sensation in his stomach again and swallowed hard. He felt as though he wanted to throw up. Why are aliens and superheroes and time travel easy, and this is hard? he asked himself. It wasn’t the first time he’d asked himself that question. He was suddenly and forcibly reminded of the three months it had taken him to work of the nerve to ask Ama…
As the WIBAs got closer, Milo felt himself getting nervous again. The dress rehearsal that had been scheduled for the previous week and had been cancelled as a result of the blackout in the gym, took place after school on the Tuesday before the awards show.

Over lunch the next day, and after school, when the four of them gather together to work on their homework and other assignments, Milo could almost swear that on a couple of occasions, he thought he saw Zack shooting furtive looks at Melissa.That could just be my imagination, he thought, but he couldn’t help but feel a flash of emotion every time it happened. He wondered if he would ever stop doing that. He also caught himself looking at Amanda on at least one or two occasions as well, but her back had been turned and she hadn’t noticed.
