Chapter 1

That thing. That hideously plaited monstrosity disguised as a girl’s skirt.

“What’s the matter, dear?” Sister asks, pushing the questionable item of clothing into my folded arms. “I think this size medium will do you just fine.”

“No, it won’t do me just fine. It’s so, so…plaid. And gray. I don’t do dress codes, especially unflattering private school uniforms. I won’t wear it. You can’t make me wear it,” I say, tossing the uniform skirt on her desk and placing the heel of my boot on top of it. I slump back in my chair, with my feet resting quite comfortably on her desk.
