Our Own Little Underworld
After getting dragged out of her school’s winter formal, 17-year-old Percy Bloom needs to escape her controlling mother, fleeing into the cold night, she's lost, alone, and freezing.
Ditched by his date and attacked by bullies, Hayden Addams, wants nothing more than to be done with high school forever. He finds Percy shivering in the woods,
and brings her back to the first place he can think of--his family’s funeral parlor.
Percy is charmed by Hayden and his usual family. Eager to help her get away from her problems, and forget his own Hayden offers Percy everything she needs, a truck, a destination, and the prettiest blue eyes she's ever seen.
Together the two hit the road, letting their hopes, dreams, and sparks fly along the way. But, can the two arrive at a future without confronting their pasts?
