Chapter One
I bit my lip but a little yelp of alarm escaped. It was officially time to panic. My panty drawer was empty.
Faye, my mother, was hovering nearby. Actually, she couldn’t have been anywhere but close by because our home was a twenty-four foot travel trailer? Sigh. Long Story.
She tapped her forehead. “Well, duh, Allie. It is Saturday . . . laundry day.”
Oops. I’d totally forgotten that my reign as queen of the annual Fruit Bowl Festival coincided with Designated Laundry Day. I mean, geez, can you blame me? It’s not like I’ had a lot of practice being the queen of anything, much less the biggest deal in Peacock Flats, Washington, population 922. 
After a prolonged sigh of disgust, Faye said, “Too late to buy new ones. You’ll have to wear mine.”
“Eeewww,” I said.  
“Beggars can’t be choosers,” Faye said.
I followed Faye down the short hallway to her bedroom. Technically, I guess it could be called a bedroom. It had a bed. What it didn’t have was room. Faye and I were squished together between the end of the bed and a wall lined with built-in drawers.
   Faye rummaged around in a drawer and pulled out a tiny scrap of nylon, a gift from her former boyfriend, Brain Dead Roy. Skimpy, bright red and two sizes to small for Allie. 
“Get real!” I said, trying to keep the sneer out of my voice. “Like I’d wear something your boyfriend gave you for Valentine Day.”
Faye rolled her eyes and muttered, “Ex boyfriend. This is my last clean pair. I can’t help it if you don’t plan ahead.”
 “Well, I’m not wearing those. They’re too small.”
“Fine,” Faye snapped. “Wear dirty ones.”
“I can’t,” I wailed. “I’m the queen!”
“For Pete’s sake, Allie, it’s not like anyone can to see them under that.”
That was a voluminous plum-colored gown spread out on her bed.
I sighed in defeat. She was right, of course, but I didn’t have to like it.
