First sentence(s):
"I swear to god, Leo, if you throw one more sock, I am going to throw you in the lake myself!" I shout, knees sticking to the vinyl as I turn to face the back of the bus.

Zombie sighting:
I dress up as a zombie.
-chapter 22


"I swear to god, Leo, if you throw one more sock, I am going to throw you in the lake myself!" I shout, knees sticking to the vinyl as I turn to face the back of the bus.

My two-bits:

The ugly aftermath of a high school rape experience is presented pretty true to form. The harsh realities unfolds, but friendships and family provide loving support throughout.

The good dose of the cheer world was interesting to learn about.
