One of the Bullied
Get your head out of a book and into life. Yeah, I'm telling you! You, who's reading this right now. Stop reading before it's too late.
Zoe Meyer - the "Zerd" - is barely surviving high school. Since day she arrived, everyone has inexplicably bullied her. Talking to her is ruining your reputation. Being sympathetic to her is the end of your social life. Even just glancing at her can make you look pathetic.
In other words: If you want your reputation intact, you beat up the Zerd.
Upon the arrival of an exchange student, Zoe begins to receive mysterious notes from someone. Someone who really wants to keep themselves hidden. Someone who shouldn't be writing to Zoe.
Then I hit something. Not something. Someone. As I look down, taking a step back, my eyes pick up something shining on the floor. I shove my glasses up my nose, the thing coming into focus as a phone. A conversation with Zoe. Some texts I recognise. Oh shit.
The second thing I do is look up, looking to see who let out the groan as we ran into each other, and ready to run away top speed if I have to. Looking to finally find out who Rita is.
It it not what I was expecting. It is under no circumstances what I expected.
