And a big THANK YOU!! to the fab Genn Albin for offering to critique my first chapter right before I sent my subs out. She's always willing to help me. Love that girl!
Anyway, then when I'm able to type I know what I'm doing. Of course, things come and change as I write, but I feel like I save myself some time during the revising period by spending time outlining and contemplating things while I'm not actually typing.
No drinking. No drugs. No hooking up. Clean body. Clear head.
That’s what Simone hears at her first Adrenaline Junkie meeting. On top of that, good grades, too. Say what? Simone and the other recruits don’t think that sounds like much fun.
But they’re wrong. The fun is just beginning.
Adrenaline Junkies, properly named Chargers, is an elite, secret society that meets in a hidden cavern under the locker rooms, and only the strongest are invited to join during their sophomore year. With Simone’s tendencies to stress over straightened refrigerator magnets and alphabetized bathroom creams, it’s no jaw-drop she barely makes it in after punching head cheerleader, snob extraordinaire, in the nose during their last halftime show. Which she so deserved, btw.
Simone should be looking for the fastest escape, which just happens to be a human-sized drain in the wall leading toward the Columbia River. She definitely shouldn’t be crazy-head enough to wanna stay.
But she does.
There are three groups, and Simone wants the highest. When the Assessment period begins, Simone repeatedly puts herself in danger while pushing her strength, survival skills, and determination to their limits. Not to mention, adrenaline is totally addicting. Almost as much as the Lead, Treston. But she’s a fool because Treston is rude, unforgiving, and most likely wishing she’d never been invited to join.
Simone's got until Spring Break to release the grips of her social “Placement” and a parasitic jock so she can prove herself worthy, get her rank up, and grow stronger—mind and body. But Adrenaline Junkies is so much bigger than she first realized, and once you’re in, you’re in. She’s got the brand burned under her collarbone to prove it.
Now staying alive? That will be a whole other feat.
