Chapter 1 Teaser:
Keri Anne nudged Val with her elbow. “How about you, Val? You going with anyone?”
Melissa snorted softly under her breath. Val looked at her with raised eyebrows.
“Yeah, Val, are you going with anyone?”
There was a world of snobbery in her tone and she fixed Val with such a knowing look, Val wondered if she’d been taking lessons from Sam. Sam looked at her that way all the time—sly and amused, like she was waiting for the punch-line of a particularly raunchy joke. Except the joke was Val. She felt the skin on the back of her neck prickle.

Frowning, she looked down at her cleats. “I’m…Well, I’m not sure if I’m going yet.”
She could almost feel Melissa’s smirk. “That’s code for no one’s asked you.”
Val narrowed her eyes at her. “How do you know?”
Melissa’s smirk deepened. “I would’ve heard otherwise.”
Val bit the inside of her cheek. God, she hated high school.
