CHAPTER NINE

Francine stared at the board with dream-filled eyes. Coach Peters was far more handsome now that she was in a classroom with him, and she made sure to get a front row seat to see him clearly. A few other girls had the same idea, but none of them were athletic like Francine. None of them could catch his attention like she could, especially when she somehow made through class without fainting so that she could ask him about the track team.

CHAPTER SEVEN

Binky looked around the room in shock. When he realized he was in an advanced classroom, he nearly fainted. He almost imploded when he saw Brain Powers at the front of the room, as well as every smart senior he’d ever had contact with, which wasn’t very many. The class, an advanced history course, only had ten people in it. Binky was the only sophomore; everyone else was considered a senior.

“Alright, I’ll call the roll. Barnes, Binky?” the teacher called. Binky nervously raised his hand. “It’s nice to meet you, Mr. Barnes. Binky is the only sophomore allowed in the course this year. His history scores last year made him eligible, as well as his other standardized scores. I hope your parents are very proud of you, Binky,” the teacher smiled.

CHAPTER SIX

WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

Fern smiled as she sank into a beanbag chair in the crowded library, crowded with shelves, that is. Elwood City High redid their library over the summer, hoping to bring in more students who weren’t into the new city librarian’s ebook policies. Fern checked out two books before sinking into the lovely beanbag chair to read. She picked an old favorite first, Frankenstein.

Footsteps sounded nearby, heavy ones. Fern looked up to see a girl wearing all black walking by, her dark makeup making her look zombie-like. Her knee-length black skirt didn’t really match her black fishnets and black combat boots, but Fern remembered that the dress code didn’t allow the miniskirt that would complete the look.

The bus arrived just as DW received her food. She made a fuss as Kate stood by the open door, waiting for the others. They would ride the same bus to Lakewood Elementary, but DW would travel to the middle school and Arthur the high school, if they ever got out the door.

CHAPTER FOUR

“Catherine! Go, go, go! You’re going to miss your flight!”

Francine’s parents were happy to send Catherine back to college. Her fiancé, so California schmuck, was glued to her side, and Francine knew they’d broken a house rule and slept together at least four times while she was there. Since they’d moved into a different apartment, Francine had her own room. Catherine did as well, but she’d share with Francine while she and her love were there. In short, Francine heard everything, her young ears traumatized beyond repair.

CHAPTER THREE

George and his father looked up from the worktable as someone knocked on the door. George’s mother had a platter with sandwiches and a pitcher of lemonade. George retrieved it, careful to place the items on a suitable surface. After Wally broke his sixth-grade year, falling into too many pieces to put back together, he’d started helping his father carve. He’d made a major flaw when making Wally, but they’d fixed that now. George had three dummies, one for him to keep and two to sell. He’d sell them at the state fair when it came to town, but now it was time to help his father.

CHAPTER TWO
Binky was helping his mom prepare dinner when a scream came from Mei-Lin’s room. Binky immediately moved to check out the situation, but Mei-Lin smashed into him in the hallway, tears streaming down her face. It was another drama of an elementary-school-aged girl. Binky knew to move, letting her storm in on their mother.
