“Well, what do you think?” asked Josie.

“That’s it? Your plan?”

Josie raised an eyebrow.

Madeline blew her breath out. “Mom will be angry.”

“Who said anything about telling her?”

“What?” She shook her head, refusing to hear that. “You have to tell her.”

“Why?” Josie’s eyes narrowed.

“She’ll ask me, and what will I say?” Madeline’s heart beat faster.

“Tell her I’m busy.”

“I can’t lie to her.”

Right.” Josie rolled her eyes. “Don’t say anything then.”

Madeline rubbed her chin.

“You said you’d keep a secret.”


“Look, I’ll be back soon. Probably. She won’t even miss me.”
