The Loft: Settling In
by Erik Schubach
Following in her mother and aunt's footsteps from the Pike series, Max takes her turn at matchmaking, or meddling as everyone else dubs it. Max uses a party in the loft to bring two people, Tracy and Alice, together who have been admiring each other from afar.
But she's continually distracted in a way she's never experienced before, by a punk rock girl, cosplaying an elf from her favorite books.
