“Natasha Friend, I loved your book. I peeked at the first page and was hooked.” -Judy Blume

MARCH 2022


Before the night of the frat fair, 15-year old Nora Melchionda’s life could have been a Gen-Z John Hughes movie. She had a sort-of boyfriend, a spot on the field hockey team, good grades, and a circle of close friends. Sure there were bumps in the road: she and her lifelong BFF Cam were growing apart and her mother was trying to clone her into wearing sensible khakis instead of short skirts. But none of that mattered, because Nora always had her dad, Rhett Melchionda, on her side. Rhett was not only Nora’s hero, but, as the Athletic Director of Faber College, he was idolized by everyone she knew. Now, Nora would give anything to go back to that life.  The life before she woke up on the golf course.
