Of Maladies and Catastrophes
Brooklyn Matthews doesn't know how he ended up working his butt off for the rest of the summer instead of hanging out at the beach and partying like he thought he would.
Actually, he does. If his sister hadn't gone and burned their oven, maybe he wouldn't have met Olivia Clarke.
Meet Olivia Clarke. She's sarcastic, annoying, mysterious. Oh, and don't forget, a shoplifter.
When Brooklyn catches her stealing from the store one day, neither of them forgets it. Especially when a few months later, they find each other in the same class and - surprise - are made lab partners.
What will happen when you partner up brutally opposing forces in class for the whole school year?
Chaos will ensue.
