  3. Chapter 3: Boobs, Boys, and Broken Hearts
    Middle school! Puberty! And since I was a tomboy all my friends were boys. And the broken hearts isn't because I dated anyone (my guy friends were pretty gross lol), it's because I moved halfway across the country.
  4. Chapter 4: A Desert Rat in a Cornfield

His first time in the west and it was June. He swore he was melting.😆 also that August I'd move in with my at the time boyfriend (chapter 6)

We found each other again and he's been back in my life since and reclaimed the throne as my favorite male in the world.
  12. Chapter 12: Awkward Adulthood
