    1. "The One Game" was one of my favorite sappy stories growing up (and read it several times.) All students at BYU (Brigham Young University) play the "One Game" which is finding their "one and only," their "one true love." The story centers around a group of college co-eds and their dating life at BYU. The main character, Carol, is faced with a dilema. As a youth she was not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, but had dated a boy who was. She had thought that they were ser [...]

I don't remember it well, but I do know I plowed through it in a short time. It's the kind of stuff I like to write: cotton candy for the soul. Sweet, enjoyable, doesn't stick with you for long.
