Of all the places to have something memorable happen to you, Oakhurst, Indiana, had to be one of the worst.
“Whatever,” she said, shaking her head. “Tell me what’s going on.”
I took a deep breath. “My parents are dating.”
She pursed her lips. “That’s okay, right? I mean, they’ve been divorced for a long time now. You had to figure that they would eventually start-”
I held up my hand to stop her, as my mother had done to me just minutes before. Stringing together the next sentence was like jamming mismatched puzzle pieces together-forced and awkward and wrong.

I have yet to read an Emery Lord book, but I have heard so many wonderful things. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book and I’m excited to read it, probably sometime next month. The two snippets are interesting. I’m curious about the situation with her parents, it sounds like a pretty weird situation. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how her plan works out.
