> "Questionably Erotic Pedicures and That Time I Tried to Join a Cult for a Girl."
Sometimes love can change your life. A lot. A teenage girl from the suburbs fell in love for the first time with an Evangelical Christian female classmate. Came out of the closet, made out in a closet, tried (and failed) to join the church of Scientology. Plus, she was utterly defeated by a former child star of a Cheerios commercial.

As happy as this sounds, Chris grows up feeling about as home there as he would if he had been adopted by aliens. But when he turns 13, his father's company transfers the family to a place so far from Tulsa it is like another universe.
