Excerpt Reveal:

JD:

“Where did I put that stupid pen?” JD wiped the sweat from his brow with one hand while continuing to search in vain with the other for Tim's pen. He was his mother's latest boyfriend and the meanest one yet. They'd been together six months and already he had scars to prove it. Being knocked around by his mother's men wasn't new to JD. She liked the losers, always had. He'd seen her punched in the gut, tossed across the room, and shoved into a wall more times than he cared to remember. But this one, this Tim, had cruelty down to a science.
JD sank to the ground, fighting tears that fought to break free. He'd pay tonight. There'd be another punishment for losing Tim's pen. Another over the top beating. Probably with the extension cord. Tim loved the extension cord. He’d threatened to wrap it around his mother's neck last week if she didn’t stop coddling the fat lump, as Tim liked to call him. Yup, JD couldn't wait for this one to break his mother's heart and leave. “Better her heart than her head,” JD mumbled to himself.
Across the parking lot, Max and Emma held hands and stared into each other’s eyes. They’d been a couple for almost two years now. JD'd fallen in love with her the first time he saw her. But she could only see Max—as if JD stood a chance with her anyway. He frowned at his dirty jeans. His new hiding place wasn't exactly the cleanest one he'd ever found.
Max wants to help me work out. JD smiled to himself. Never had he imagined Max S├ínchez would want to be his friend. Max. One of the popular kids. He played sports, had all the girls after him, and was voted most likely to succeed his junior year. A junior never got that honor. It had always been reserved for the seniors. Max got it both years. If only I were that popular.
