The Awkward Squad. Author(s): Instead, she is surprised to be told that she is to head up a new police squad, working on solving old cold cases. Though relieved to still have a job, Capestan is not overjoyed by the prospect of her new role. Even less so when she meets her new team: a crowd of misfits, troublemakers and problem cases, none. This is a compilation of many short stories about the anime Hetalia! The different characters go through certain situations: they could be funny, depressing, awkward, fun, etc. At the beginning of each chapter though, the theme will be written just to warn those who hate scary/really sad things! Pl. Rejecting a book takes a matter of moments. Sometimes a page is enough, while at other times, a paragraph will do it. Once I commit to a book though, I’m reluctant to throw it aside.

She is what you call invisible freak. Nobody knows who she is, except her friend Rose. Nicklaus is the bad boy from the town of Las Vegas. He basically owns the town. He doesn't talk to.
