Sometimes taking a risk keeps the wheels turning.
Everyone seems to have life figured out but me. I’ve never been good at much, though I’ll give anything the old college try.
Well, except for actual college. I’m not trying that at all. Not yet.
So here I am, taking a gap year after high school, which I hear is a totally acceptable practice in many countries. In my high school filled with over-achievers, I’m the odd one out.
Working my summer job and feeling my lowest, I accept an invitation to sub in on a roller derby team. I own skates and am okay at it, so why not? I never expected to love the feeling of racing the track. Of pushing my way to victory. For once in my life, I might actually be good at something.
I even have a new guy to crush on—Rob, who I met after a derby match. Only it turns out, he’s affiliated with our rival team-slash-sworn enemies. The team split in two last year from a big blowout between the captains.
And worse, Rob is the brother of our rival’s captain. Maybe worse than that, I kinda took a solemn vow when I joined the team that I’d never associate with any of them.
The team means everything to me, but Rob is finding a place in my heart too. Just when I thought I’d figured out my life, I fall back down again.
