Party (Story of My Life) by Tom Leveen
An e-book from Tom Leveen
Learn hundreds of foreign words and phrases!I'm the girl nobody knows until she commits suicide. Then suddenly everyone had a class with her. You know the one I mean. Tonight's the night. Everyone will be there. Will you?
Graduation in Santa Barbara, a house near the beach, and no parents! That can mean only one thing: PARTY! But not everyone's in a partying mood. Beckett is only going to confirm she is invisible after having spent two years caring for her mother; Morrigan seeks revenge on her ex- for having the gall to not sleep with her; Azize is trying to make a friend—any friend; and Anthony's ready to pop off on anyone who mentions his maimed, combat-veteran brother.
As the night quickly spirals out of control, eleven unique characters—all of whom are familiar to anyone who's been a high school student—crash, collide, and recombine in ways none of them saw coming when a violently brutal hate crime brings the celebration to a halt.
Graduation is a time of change. But after tonight, no one will ever be the same.
