The Queen B* And the Homecoming King

December 1, 2015


The Queen B*, Alexis Wyndham, has only three rules when it comes to dating that star quarterback, Brett Pederson:

  1. No obligations to spend every waking moment with each other.
  2. No public displays of affection while at Eastline High.
  3. And absolutely, under no circumstances, will she ever go to the Homecoming dance.

But as her life is completely upended time and time again, she begins to wonder if some rules are meant to be broken.

So if you’ve been following this series, you’ve made it to the end of Crista Mchugh’s The Queen B* Series. And with a seamless finish, McHugh leaves no questions unanswered or stone unturned when it comes to the status of The Queen B* and The Homecoming King.

Setting up rules is a condition that Alexis makes, to ensure the possible longevity of a relationship with Brett. But as Brett and Alexis focus on what they have going on the rest of the world continues to fire off an explosion of fireworks. Reminding the pair that there is so much more to consider and endure when being The Queen B*, The Homecoming King and more importantly, being together.

With memorable secondary characters, Eastline High displays an array of personalities, issues and experiences. And as each high school moment passes by both Alexis and Brett realise the individual growth needed in order to remain together.

The Queen B* and The Homecoming King is not only about Alexis and Brett. It continues to hold the status of the series as an empathetic recount of the highs and the lows of being a young adult. Including the majority of high school experiences, Crista has created honest and flawed characters that remain true to the adolescent experience. Being truthful to themselves and allowing for compromise and the understanding of the essence of respect; Alexis and Brett will have readers content, excited and proud of their senior year and the adults they will become.

Growing up in small town Alabama, Crista relied on story-telling as a natural way for her to pass the time and keep her two younger sisters entertained.

She currently lives in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with her husband and two children, maintaining her alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while she continues to pursue writing on nights and weekends.

Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs she’s had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant.

And she’s also a recovering LARPer. (She blames it on her crazy college days)
