Something is very wrong with these children.

Sixteen-year-old Courtney hadn’t planned on babysitting that Saturday afternoon, but when her best friend bails on a job and tells the mom Courtney will be there in her place, she doesn’t really feel like she can refuse. And, anyway, it’s just a few hours. What could possibly go wrong?

Combine one small cheese pizza, a jump rope, an open flame, and a kid who’s read one too many fairy tales, and what do you end up with? An afternoon Courtney will never forget.

Available in e-book format.
