Fun post! I like "Who needs friends, anyway," as an opening to Chapter 4. Oh, the places you could go! I like that the chapter titles give you an idea of where the story would head. This prompt intimidated me--glad you did it!

I dread going through high school all over again with my kids. It can be so brutal.
