With just weeks left before her high school graduation, Alee dumps with her sunshine stealing boyfriend in epic fashion – by sleeping with his best friend.

Since bad things happen in three, becoming the school slut is just the beginning.

A mass shooting steals the life of Alee’s Olympic-bound best friend and a homeless drug addict turns out to be the father who abandoned Alee as a child.

With a backpack full of daddy-issues and a bucket list of broken dreams, Alee searches for light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

Will the man who broke her, be the one who saves her life?

Here’s the thing about living in the city: you run into the same people all the time even when you go out of your way to avoid them. I’m planted in the corner of the tea shop devouring a slice of cheesecake when Laine walks in. Apparently, I’m avoiding Starbucks for nothing. He orders a drink then walks right over to me.
“Since when do you drink tea?”
“So you are avoiding me.” He sets his mug on the table and sits in the chair across from me.
“I’m not avoiding you.”
“I saw you leaving Cala Foods on Tuesday. I called your name and you literally ran from me.”
“You saw that?”
“It’s kind of hard to miss a girl sprinting down Noe Street carrying a gallon of milk in one hand and a twenty-four pack of toilet paper in the other.”
“When you gotta go…” Insinuating I had to take a monster shit in front of a boy should make me want to puke. Laine isn’t that kind of boy. Though, today especially, he doesn’t look boyish. “Why are you all dressed up?”
“I had a job interview.”
“That’s very grown-up. Where?”
“My dad works for the city. He scored me an interview with his department. The waitlist is a mile long, but fingers crossed.”
I cross my fingers for him.
“What about you?”
“I’m officially a high school graduate.” I pull a folded envelope from Bryn’s tote bag and hand it to Laine. He opens it and removes my crumpled diploma. He makes a disapproving face at my treatment of the document I’ve worked four years to earn. “What? It’s just a piece of paper.”
“I guess.” Laine sets it on the table. “Doesn’t your mom want to frame it or something?”
“I don’t have that kind of mom.” I fork my cheesecake. “Since you’re crashing my graduation party, here.” I offer him a bite.
Something sad fills Laine’s eyes. He accepts the cheesecake and washes it down with his tea. “We can do better than this.” He points to my plate. “Let’s get out here.”
Laine leaves his tea and we head outside. His hands are in the pockets of his dress pants. He looks like a stockbroker or a law student. He looks hot. I look around for an excuse to run. No stray dogs or bees in sight.
“I spent the last of my money on that cheesecake, so unless you received a signing bonus, I think this is where we call it a day.”
“My mom made lasagna last night and my old man won’t miss a few beers.” The idea feels innocent. It might be on Laine’s part. I was the school slut and sluts can’t be trusted.
“I don’t know. I told Bryn’s parents I would stay over.” I spend a few nights a week at their place. It makes them feel less alone.
“Really? That’s how you want to spend your Friday night? Watching the Hallmark channel?” I laugh at his accuracy. “Come on, Alee. My parents are working all night. Help me break some rules for once.”
When he puts it that way, how can I say no?


**About the Author**
Nicole Loufas was born and raised in California. She claims to be a San Francisco native, however she's lived in both Northern and Southern California. She credits her creativity to the fact that she attended 12 schools between kindergarten and her senior year in high school. Her nomadic childhood allowed her to reinvent herself often. Some might say she was a liar. While others see the stories she told as a coping mechanism. Twelve schools, in six cities, in twelve years - give her a break. Today she channels her storytelling ability into writing novels. Long story short - kids that lie become writers.
