Get Real

Chapter One

"Don't you just love Fridays?" Chloe Carlson asked, taking three cartons of frozen yogurt from the fridge to the kitchen table. "They're totally the best day of the week!"

"Fridays are definitely good. But the best?" Tara Jordan, one of Chloe's closest friends, thought aloud as she plucked three spoons from the drawer. "I'd have to say the best days are Saturdays-no school."

"Absolutely," Quinn Reyes, Chloe's other best friend, agreed. She plopped some napkins onto the table. "No getting up at the uncivilized hour of six on Saturdays."

"Good point," Chloe said. "But once you hit Saturday, you can't look forward to it anymore. That's one of the best things about Friday-anticipation."

"Speaking of anticipation ... yum!" Tara pried the lid off the banana yogurt. Chloe and Quinn opened their own cartons, strawberry for Chloe, raspberry for Quinn Chloe slipped off her beaded flip-flops, propped u her feet, and sighed happily. She really did love Fridays And what a great week it had been-no bad hair days an A on her English essay, and a sweet good-bye kiss from her boyfriend, Lennon Porter.

[Chloe: Not good-bye forever, just for one week. Which is way too long, in my opinion, but what can I do? Lennon and the rest of the debate team are at a statewide competition in Sacramento. I'll really, really miss him. In the meantime, though, there's a weekend to plan!]

Planning the weekend was another thing Chloe loved about Fridays. Sitting around with Tara an Quinn, deciding what to do-it was practically a ritual. If one of them was sick or busy and couldn't be in on the plans, it just didn't feel the same.

We're like the Three Musketeers, Chloe decided smiling happily. All for one and one for all.

"Okay, down to business." Chloe pushed her long blond hair back from her face. "What's up for tonight How about the mall? We can check out that new Glam and Glitter store. They have great nail polish and makeup."

Quinn nodded eagerly, her dark hair swinging against her cheeks. "We can check out guys, too," she said with a grin. "Or at least Tara and I can. Maybe Rick Northrup will be there. Or Doug Weyman. He and Sherry Givens broke up, you know."

"Get out! When?" Tara asked.

"Yesterday," Quinn reported, scooping up the last spoonful of her yogurt. "I heard Sherry talking about it today in PE."

"They weren't together very long," Chloe noted "What happened?"

Quinn shrugged. "No details. But Sherry said it was mutual, so I guess nobody's heart got broken."

"So Doug Weyman is free," Tara said thoughtfully. "He's pretty cute. Ooh, and so is Brian O'Keefe," she added, her gray eyes sparkling.

Chloe tried to picture Brian O'Keefe. "Oh, right. That dark-haired guy in your math class."

"Mmm." Tara sighed dreamily. "He's a real hottie. And he's totally my type -- smart, funny, and adorable, in that Nick Lachey kind of way."

Chloe laughed. "And that makes you who, Jessica Simpson?"

"I wish!" Tara quipped.

Chloe scraped the bottom of her yogurt carton, too "Okay, so it's settled then. We're going to the mall. You two look for guys, and I'll look for nail polish." "Hey, everybody." Riley, Chloe's twin sister, cam into the kitchen and made a beeline for the refrigerator. "What's happening?" Get Real
