Title: Chemicals Collide
Sixteen-year-old Sara knows the name of every single cleaning product under the kitchen sink. She knows which to use before school and which to use after to ensure each day runs as efficiently as possible. Which isn’t an easy feat when you’re an only child living with your chronically OCD mother. But all of her self-preservation skills don’t tell her how to deal with Harvey, a boy who seems to pop up at the most inopportune moments.
Harvey is polite, intelligent, and even a little charming but Sara doesn’t have time for theHarvey’s of the world. She’s got her arms full with the dreadfully dull Tristan, and bad boy Speedway racer Logan, who appeases Sara’s desperate need to rebel. In between being the perfect, immaculate daughter at home, and the exact opposite in town, Sara is starting to think that maybe anxiety runs in the family.
The smell of chemicals filled the air and I struggled not to gag as I scoured the bottom of the shower.
