When her life falls apart, will Dahlia be able to get back out there and rise to the top again?

EXCERPT

My boyfriend turned to face me, and I hurried into his arms. “Princess, you’ll be amazing up there. Look at me.” I tilted my head back. “I’m so proud of you.” He tucked a strand of hair behind my ears.

      I rose to my tiptoes. “I love you.”

      With the pads of his fingers, he wiped the tears pooling in the corners of my eyes.

      “I love you too.”

      I looked around. “It’s kinda scary. All those people. The stage, the crowd—”

      “Carter will be up there with you. You have nothing to worry about.”

      Riley stepped next to us. “Okay, Dahlia, time to go. Ready?”

       “I guess.”

      Would my voice be shaky like this on stage?

      Butterflies took flight in my stomach. The not-so-fun kind.

      I walked away, my hand locked in Jeff’s, touching until our fingers broke apart.

      Carter neared me and snaked his arm through mine. “It’s okay, Dah. I’m here. We can do this. Just follow my lead, I’ll take care of everything.”

      Those words.

      My pulse evened.

      We exchanged a smile as Stud padded in our direction and put his arms around us.

      “Let’s show them what we’ve got.” He stopped and pulled us into his embrace. “We’re kicking off our first world tour. How awesome is that? Let’s do this, motherfuckers.”

      Stud’s longish stubble rapped my cheek.

      “Oh yes,” Carter said as I replied, “Let’s make history.”

      The lights of the stage blinded me. My heart sank down to my toes. “Seventy thousand people,” I said, mostly to myself. “Seventy thousand.”

      My insides tightened. Carter said a few words to the crowd, but I registered none. My eyes drifted to the right side where Jeff stood. Did I look like a deer caught in headlights? My fingers shook. My head turned. My legs wobbled. I tried to breathe, but my lungs were closed for business.

      “You can do this,” Jeff mouthed.

      I swallowed the lump choking me.

      Carter strummed the first chords of “Heart for Rent.” My heart leaped in my throat. Why did I agree to this? I loved our simple garage band. This, right here, was way too big for a White Crest girl like me. I shut my eyes, silencing my thundering heart. I could do this. I breathed out. My fingers played on their own. I locked my eyes on my best friend. He winked. No one was here except the two of us—and Stud. We were back in Carter’s garage, dreaming about getting fifty people to come see us play.

      This—right here—was our dream.

      I rolled my shoulders—chasing the tension away—rotated my neck and found my voice.
