JOSH AND BRYANNA, MAKING OUT on the roof.
The image is burned into my mind like a solar eclipse you can’t look away from—one moment, everything is bright, and then you’re left with total darkness.
I thought Josh really liked me. I’d felt a connection with him tons of times before, but after the fountain I was sure I wasn’t imagining things. His feelings were the same as mine, and they were as real as the penny I fished out of the fountain and put in the little jewelry box on my dresser.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUNE :: BY CARRIE ROLLWAGEN
STEPHANIE AND I ARE IN LINE at Cinnabon—why is there ALWAYS a long line at Cinnabon?—and she’s playing with my new iPod Touch.
My parents bought me an iPod Touch for my birthday. That was, like, really cool of them and everything, except that I can already tell I’m going to break it in about five minutes, and I don’t really know what the point of it is. Why not just get me an iPhone? It’s so like them to get close to the mark while still missing it completely.

I EXPECTED STEPHANIE TO BE MAD that I won’t apply for jobs at Hot Topic. I just didn’t think she’d be this mad.
I wish she could be happy with my real reasons for not applying: “I don’t want to,” and “I’m underage.” Apparently, those don’t cut it, so I’ve just told her that my dad won’t let me work until I’m sixteen.
“June, don’t you dare blame this on somebody else,” Stephanie’s saying to me — yelling at me, actually. “Don’t blame this on your dad. This is about you, and how you won’t get out of your own little world.”
