Sorry, Not Sorry
Harper, Poe, and Brett have a long past but only a short future. The three were best friends freshman year, enemies by junior year, and now they mostly ignore each other. But when they’re each invited to a prospective freshman overnight at the college they all got into, they hope they can get through the night without a repeat of World War Prom. Each has a different reason for going to the overnight besides assessing the school. Harper’s hell bent on getting revenge on the ex-boyfriend who cheated on her. Poe plans to ditch her host students and knock on the door of the long lost sister she only recently discovered exists. And a quirky scavenger hunt created by Brett’s mysterious online crush sends him hurtling toward the finish line of finally meeting her in person.
But each of their plans goes awry when college hi-jinks throw wedges in their way. Brett gets mistaken for a fraternity pledge and is kidnapped during a hazing task. Poe secretly follows her sister to a house party, which is raided by the police. And Harper’s attempt at revenge on her ex ignites a prank war between two rival dorms. As the campus falls apart due to their actions, the three ex-friends will come together once again and help each other complete their goals, even as the secrets long buried between them arise.

Guilt keeps eating away at Kasey but no one will listen to her apologies. So she does the next best thing: she starts a blog to confess her sins.
