EXCERPT from LAST CHANCE by Gregg Hurwitz
Tor Teen, 2017
“Chance,” Patrick said. His voice was dead calm, like the time he told me to hold still before he shot a rattlesnake coiled two feet behind my heel.
I knew he was trying not to panic me, but it had the opposite effect.
I didn’t know what was wrong, but his and Alex’s eyes were locked on a spot a few inches to my side.
And then the smell hit.
Rancid. Like rotten eggs.
I knew I had to turn my head. But I really didn’t want to.
Something detached from the bark of the tree beside me—it seemed to be made of the tree itself. A shadow flickered toward me.
A long, three-digit hand.
Even as it reached for me, I could see the color of the skin changing from a barklike pattern to a familiar orange.
A single word spun at me through the panic whirl of my thoughts: chameleon.
The hand clamped over my forearm, singeing my skin. I yelled. I couldn’t help it.
You would’ve, too.

My adventure was exploring the dark regions around our neighborhood, the canyon and the mesas.

My adventure was the 1st time I took my daughter trick or treating. Watching her figure out that if she said trick or treat she got candy was so cool. She was an adorable 18 month old little read robin hood. For weeks after Halloween that year she played dress up trick or treating, where she’d ring our doorbell, say trick or treat, and expect a treat…..all the while in her costume, never without it. I swear she felt like that costume was magical, because she got treats!!!
