Read an Excerpt

From Without a Net I don't know why I didn't head back to my dorm. Maybe because Marina was standing between me and the door. Maybe because that's where we'd come from an hour before. Or maybe because I wanted to get as far away as possible and the dorm was right there, a mere stone's throw. Whatever the reason, I soon found myself at the other end of the main building, propping myself against the auditorium door and sobbing like a deranged lunatic. How did this happen? I asked myself, opening my fist and laying my palm against the smooth wood. I'd moved halfway across the country from everything I knew to be here with Annette, and now she was dumping me. Or was she? I wiped my face and leaned my forehead against the door, willing myself to think logically, to get a grip. Instead I got footsteps, coming down the hall behind me. Just what I needed — another audience. I yanked open the auditorium door and slid into the quiet darkness. Autopilot led me to row K, to my seat, seven from the end. I slumped heavily into the chair, staring at nothing. Without Annette, I thought, my mind shifting the words into without a net. That was precisely how I felt — like a tightrope walker a hundred feet above the ground, teetering dangerously with no net below.
