 EXCERPT from LAST CHANCE by Gregg Hurwitz Tor Teen, 2017 Something black in the corner of the box catches my eye. It’s soft to the touch. I lift it to the dim light. It’s Mom’s fancy clutch purse. The outside is stiff and stained, reeking of lilac from when her perfume bottle cracked open. I think about the force of a muni bus hitting a perfume bottle. And then I think about it hitting other stuff. I gather my courage and unsnap the purse. I tilt it to look inside. A trickle pours out, like tiny diamonds. No—glass. At first I think they’re shards from the perfume bottle, but there are too many of them. As they brush my fingers, I feel that they’re not sharp, not sharp at all, and I realize that they’re pebbled glass from the shattered windshield. They tumble onto a spot of moonlight at my feet, and I see that they’re tinted crimson. Somehow this brings it all home. I am a six-year-old kid without a mom or a dad. This is who I am now. I am alone here in the kitchen, holding the last relics of my parents. I am alone in the world. Even inside myself I am alone, a tiny spotlit figure in a giant dark warehouse. My face twists. My cheeks are wet. My shoulders shudder. I don’t realize I’m crying until I hear Patrick’s feet thumping the stairs behind me, and then I’m turning around, and he’s hugging me, and I hear his voice in my ear. “I got it from here, little brother.” My face presses into his arm, and I cry and cry and think I’ll never stop, and he knows not to say anything else. I feel like I’m coming apart, my insides gone jagged, shattered into as many pieces as there are bits of glass at my feet. It’s not just the worst I’ve ever felt. It’s the worst anyone has ever felt. Until nine years later, when it would feel like a Sunday stroll through 3 Winners will receive a Set Copy of LAST CHANCE Series (2 Books in Total) THE RAINS and LAST CHANCE by Gregg Hurwitz.
