Danger9b and his Goddess of Fortune
Says Danger9b: "Something's wrong with me, Rick Foster, admit it. I'm a terrible camel driver, a clumsy art thief, I hug dead people, steal carts of horse dung, and impersonate doctors. I've been hauled in by secret police, came close to second degree murder, and continue to make my first crush think I am some kind of government agent. I inadvertently put my father on as assassin's list. And at 16, I'm a really bad liar. So why start behaving myself now?
Rick, the son of an active spy, was practical, harmless, straight-as-an-arrow, knowing all the rules. What happened to him? Jill MacGregor happened. Fiery, stand-offish, rich capricious trickster, Jill is the new girl in their small International High School in Ankara, Turkey. Despite his best instincts, Rick esteems Jill as an earthly goddess. Unfortunately, fully mortal Jill is an entire universe of trouble. Is her wonder worth the worship? This boy-girl thing is a massive mystery for Rick. There's a reason she is alluring to only two boys, and he can't figure out why his nemesis and Jill's first love, Mitch Alegre is so hooked. He's already got the hottest girl in school. With a solitary stick of gum, Jill contorts Rick's first whopping lie to win her over and lands them both prisoners in the Soviet embassy. To keep his deception and her interest booming, it's gonna take the Beatles, the Russians and even the CIA to work it all out. Jill hoards her own secrets but now must count on help from Rick in an international search to find her massive, shadowy inheritance, whatever it is, or it will be gone forever. Knowing that only Jill has what other heirs want, they stalk Jill, and their tactics grow more desperate. First love has never been more fun or threatening, piecing together the mammoth puzzle of Jill, his Goddess of Fortune.
