Excerpt Monday

Read about excerpt monday HERE
This is just a small excerpt from the first draft of the novel I'm working on. It's listd as a YA, but it's more of a teen read. I know it needs editing and parring down, but the power went out for 7 hours last night, so all the editing I was working on was lost. ------- REMOVED SINCE I'VE CHANGED MUCH OF THIS
