Welcome to "Wow, This Girl is Not a Pushover" or SVH #53, "Second Chance."

Here are the book's two major players (see what I did there?), Kristin Thompson, Miss Almost Pro-Tennis Player and Bruce Patman, Big Asshole on Campus, to narrate this story for you:

Kristen: So I'm new to this whole SVH book thing. Who are you, exactly?
Bruce: Ha! That's funny. Normally I go around trying to rape woman but, as far as you are concerned, I am a sexy and filthy rich tennis player.
Kristen: Sweet. Anything else

Because I'm reading them entirely out of order, I was shocked- SHOCKED!- to find out Regina Morrow had died from trying cocaine one time. WTH, Francine Pascal?!

I even loved the twins' friends as much as I loved them. Francine Pascal had a way of writing that I adored as a pre-teen.
