    Chapter 2 part 7

    “Ross,” Dana said, trying out the name on him, “I am absolutely sure I do NOT want another beer. I heard on NRP a few days ago that just saying the word ‘beer’ makes men view women with ‘beer eyes,’ seeing them as more attractive than they really are. I always wanted to be more attractive, but not just by saying the word ‘beer!’ And . . . I have homework.”

    “Okay, okay. I get the point. I will be stopping by your site tomorrow morning to make arrangements to take you out to Little Hog Island to see the roseates and arctics.”

    “See you then.” Dana revved her engine lightly and then swung out of the campsite and onto the road back north. When she came to the opening at the end of the campground where the road hugged the shore, she could see the dim lights of Buck’s Dingy heading slowly back toward Hog Island.

    Chapter 3: A Project with Billy Owens

    part 1

    Rude waited for Billy outside Mr. Brunelle’s Physics class. He peered through a rip in the electricity handout Mr. Brunelle had taped over the window to stop kids from looking in and distracting his class while he was talking. Billy and Garrett were sitting together at the back of the room shooting spit-balls through straws trying to stick them on the ceiling over Ami Whitesson’s head. One of them came loose and dropped onto her head. Ami reached up and felt it, made a face, and looked up at the ceiling just as another came loose. She ducked to the side and it plopped onto her shoulder.

    “Damn,” Rude said. He had been hoping it would hit her in the face. Ami turned and glared at Billy and Garrett.

    “What did you say, Rude?” A familiar voice said. Rude turned. It was Phip Rellins. No one called him Mr. Rellins. He was Phip to everyone, teachers and students alike. “Did you want me to escort you down for a little talk with Mr. Harmond?”
