One Night Stand
Alexis is a good girl --- a quiet girl, the kind who has never caused her parents any trouble. But she has quickly become the kind of girl she never thought she would be: the kind the boys talk about in the locker room, the kind whose bad reputation is known to kids in other grades, the kind who finds ugly words scrawled on her locker, the kind whose parents would be shocked to know what she does at many parties.
Alexis' big problem is that she has never learned how to say no, never learned to value herself the way the boys seem to when she's with them: "Their hands felt so good, wanting me. Needing me. Their words made me feel beautiful. Irresistible. Even powerful for that one brief moment before it was over. But I was none of those things. I was nothing."
Damien has known Alexis since elementary school. But when he has the chance to have sex with her at a high school party, he jumps at the opportunity --- he is one of the last of his friends to lose his virginity, and has heard that Alexis will have sex with anyone.
But also might change his relationship with his good friend Samuel.
Samuel has loved Alexis forever, but unlike his other guy friends, he respects her enough to keep his hands off her. So when he hears Damien and the other guys bragging about their exploits, he's not sure how to feel. And when Alexis grows increasingly distant, he's worried that he's lost her, too.
He and Alexis' best friend, Allison, share the bond of loving Alexis and trying to help her however they can.
But when Alexis reveals that she's expecting a baby after her night with Damien, Allison knows she needs to help Alexis in any way she can, whether Alexis makes the same choice as Ava or a different one altogether.
