Chapter One

The first time I ever saw Jolie was at the Four States Fair, the year I turned sixteen.

It didn’t seem like one of those days when your whole life changes, and if you’d told me I was about to get dragged into the most dangerous and amazing experience of my entire life, I never would have believed it.

Or maybe I would have, come to think of it. I’ve been through a few tight spots in my life, and if I’ve learned anything, it’s that you should always expect the unexpected.

I remember it was about nine o’clock or so, and me and Cameron were just getting ready to grab a bite to eat before we headed home for the night.

That’s when I saw her, standing by the ticket booth and sipping on a can of Cherry Coke. I wouldn’t usually have paid much attention, but she was so pretty I couldn’t help giving her a second glance. She had long red hair with blonde streaks that glinted in the carnival lights, and she reminded me of a basketball player or maybe Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. Very athletic.
