I never believed a boy would like me. When I’m around Maiken, I feel like I can conquer the world. He gives me the confidence to stand up to my enemy. I vowed to Tessa Stevens that she would see a new me. But people don’t change overnight. I’m still the same girl she knew before Christmas break. I still live on a farm, stutter when I’m nervous, spit out random facts, and avoid confrontation. I’m not the type to punch first and ask questions later. But when she lays her paws on Maiken, all bets are off.
Since my dad died, I can’t seem to get my act together. I’m failing two classes. I’m suspended from basketball, and Chase Stevens makes playing the game difficult for the entire team, but none of that matters when my family is faced with yet another tragedy. My only lifeline is the girl with butterscotch hair, amber eyes, and quirky personality. The one whose flirty smiles and shy looks are only reserved for me. The girl who has a way of picking me up when I feel like I want to run and hide. The problem is I might not get the chance to see Quinn ever again when my mom has no choice but to move a thousand miles away.
