London Prep - where the boys are as cute as their accents.
When my parents told me that I'd be spending three weeks at a London prep school on a student exchange my junior year, I was furious. I love New York. My school. My friends. And I didn't want to leave. But after some not-so-subtle insistence about experiencing a new culture, gaining worldly knowledge, and the fact that it was only three weeks, I knew I wasn't getting out of it.
So, I decided that if I had to go, I might as well have some fun.
Which was how I met Harry at a pub. His blue eyes, adorable accent, and charm instantly won me over - right after his lips did.

My first day at school is more eventful than I anticipated. A boy named Mohammad takes me under his wing, declares himself my ...
