And oh does it hurt not to start editting.
Anyway, Leah and Marcus have met, they now share a classroom. She's been asked to help tutor him, a task she doesn't dare tell her brother about, he's too worried about them even being in the same school. His father is out of prison, but so is the major villain, Big Snake.
I still have to mix in Leah's cousin, the only relative other than Jerome that she ever trusted with her secret. Turns out her cousin is Carl, one of the players from my published novel, PULL. He needs more face time, and since he has his own problem, it felt good to put the two of them together as the only people they dare share their secrets with.
I also have to introduce Mr. Hammer, who went to prison for his role int he death of his daughter.
