Everything can change in an instant. Everything. And then there is only before and after. Alice had a plan for her junior year. She’d laugh a lot, reinvent herself a little, and always have her friends right there with her. But, lately hanging out hasn’t be as easy as it used to be. Maybe it’s because everyone is a little over their heads with relationships and school and too much to do…or maybe something has changed between Alice and Liz and Pam and Gwen. Before Alice can even get her head around what that might mean, something does change. Something big. And, now nothing can ever be the same again.
