First, history: growing up, I went to 15 schools. 5 elementary, 5 jr high, 5 high school. I wish a parent in the military was the excuse, but no. I never stayed at one school for more than one year.

So my last 2 years were the longest I’d ever stayed at any one school. Today, while doing research for my next book (because the series is based in Spokane) I went to my old high school’s website and alumni, hoping to find a few uniform pics. Here’s what I found:
