This humorous short story bundle contains three intertwined tales which take place before the events of the novel, Leveled.
Sisters: After Perse and Missy both experience a terrible and demoralizing day, Missy decides a night out is just what they need to brighten their spirits. And to boost Perse’s self-confidence.
Mission: Marriage: While on a cruise with friends, Stef comes to the conclusion that she’s ready for a long-term relationship again and is convinced she can design the perfect system to make that happen. But she’ll need the input from her friends, and a flirtatious waitress, to get the ball rolling.
The Interview: After a mock interview conducted by her family, Perse is ready to face the last hurdle to secure her dream job. All she needs to do is keep her anxiety in check and hope the interviewers don’t ask any off the wall questions. As long as that happens, she’ll be fine. Yeah, she’ll be just fine.
