Read an Excerpt
As I stuffed my second empty duffel bag into the dorm closet, I decided on a shower, since I smelled like my expiration date had come and gone weeks ago. A guy zoomed by the doorway, then I heard the footsteps slow and stop. “Hey, guy,” he said. “We're gettin' a game going downstairs, do you . . . holy Jesus!”“What?” I said.“You look just like Schroeder.”“From Peanuts?”“What? No. This kid. Graduated last year. You could be his brother. I'm the first to tell you that?” the guy said, revealing a flawless set of pearly, white teeth.I smiled back, dazzled by him. I hoped I wasn't blushing. “You're the first to tell me anything. You're the first person I've met here.”“You're kidding. Well, we're playing touch football, could use another player or two,” he said. “You comin'?”“Um, sure,” I said. Showering could definitely wait.
