"Our plan was to sneak out of Claire's bedroom window once her parents had gone to bed and meet the boys by the railroad tracks. We wanted to be out when the moon was full and high. Midnight. We weren't allowed to stay out past eleven. We'd been feeling dreamy all day, drunk on summer sun and tart strawberries and fizzy water. It was July and the day was dangerous; the word twenty-second made my mouth move like a kiss and a bite."
