Excerpt

There are a lot of people who can't believe that Jojo has the nerve to come back to our neighborhood. There are more people who don't want him around. Things haven't exactly been peaceful since he went away. Things are never peaceful in my neighborhood. But at least people haven't worried about Jojo for the past two years.

Prince of Pot
Excerpt

Waterfall plus girl. That’s apparently what it takes for me to forget where and how I live.

A low, phlegmy grunt reminds me.

Another.

Snuffling.

“Is that what I think it is?” Sam asks, her voice turned raspy. Then she starts whistling. She manages a few notes before she’s all air and no sound.

I know the feeling. It’s hard to whistle when your mouth’s gone dry as a creek bed in August.

That sound was a bear, all right. It was Hazel. I can tell before I catch a glimpse of her cinnamon-speckled fur.

She’s going to ruin my perfect hour.

Dad’s eyes narrow.

“And?” he asks.

We just had our biggest fight ever, but he trusts my judgment. With that one word, he’s relying on me to make the call.

“We have a problem.”
