Cory Martin’s second novel, She Likes:, is a young adult love story that follows high school Junior, underdog, and psychic, Charlie Deckard, through the trials of love unrequited and the bigger question of whether our destinies are predetermined or if we actively shape the outcomes of our lives.
Charlie Deckard is a hopeless romantic who can’t wait to meet his one true love…which he knows will happen during third hour, the second week of his junior year of high school. Charlie Deckard is also a psychic. She Likes: is narrated with Charlie’s underdog charisma and penetrating omniscience, and readers find themselves in their protagonist’s worn-out, second-hand shoes: painfully aware of every reason why Claire Radcliffe will never like him back. But Charlie’s on his way to discovering that taking chances can yield greater results than the sure things in life, and true love only has room to grow where possibilities are endless. She Likes: an anti-love story that fills seats with fans waving flags for the underdog.

Other Books by Cory Martin
Cory Martin’s debut novel, Swamp Song, is a new adult story about a city boy at odds with himself and his new Louisiana wilderness world, and his uncle’s undying interest in his potential.
Cory Martin picked up the pen again for the first time in years when a friend first told her about National Novel Writing Month in 2010. The result was the very rough draft of the story that became Swamp Song (CreateSpace 2013). She returned to NaNoWriMo in 2011 and She Likes: (CreateSpace 2017) appeared on her screen.
Her entire life has been spent in rural southern Missouri and she tries to exemplify the resultant values of family and faith in her stories. She’d be lying if she didn’t admit a world-lust wonder at the bizarre or that these things manifest in her writing as well.
