Dessa is happy to keep the secret, but she starts hanging out with Kat's theater friends, hoping to learn more about Kat's new relationship.
Everything's going great until Dessa accidentally lets Kat's secret slip. Some other students quickly make Kat a target--and Dessa takes steps to defend her friend that leave her suspended. Suddenly Dessa has to find ways to support her friend--and rebuild Kat's trust--while keeping off of school grounds.
