When Alley started her senior year at Upper East High in the South Hills area, it was supposed to be the usual drag of hanging out with people who spent more on one outfit than Alley did on her entire wardrobe. That was until Kirsten, a girl in their clique, suddenly goes missing and the only people who seem to care are her friends. All evidence leads to the new comer Shane, a cocky and self-pretentious person in Alley’s opinion, but the police seem uninterested so she and the rest of the girls start a little investigation of their own. But they are nowhere closer to finding Kirsten than when they started and now they had the police’s attention; just not in the way they expected. The girls have to start over and discover that maybe it wasn’t an outsider who took Kirsten, but someone within their own clique who has something to hide; a secret that just might have gotten Kirsten killed.

Here are two excerpts of Uninvited by Leah Spiegel and Megan Summers:

1. A few serious looking lifters, wearing do rags over top of their heads, paused to watch us enter the main floor of the gym. I would have thought the wind was blowing through our hair like how it happens in movies by the way their mouths dropped at the sight of us. Feeling like hot stuff, I tried to hold back a smile until he led us off to a side room and explained, “First, I have to measure you.”

“Lord have mercy,” Kayla groaned.

“What did you sign me up for?” I hissed at Val, but she just grimaced and shrugged.

“Is it too late to turn around?” Kayla groaned.

“So who’s first?” Kellen asked brightly.

Kayla and I shrunk back from the rest of the group, but Libby, who had the figure of a stick, confidently strode forward and held her arms out with a smug smile on her face as he took measurements.

“Anorexic,” Kayla coughed, and both our shoulders shook in silent laughter.


2. I knew Buddy needed to go out and do his business, but for some reason, my big watch dog was either very lazy or afraid of the dark. He would drag me out of bed to go for a run in the morning, but when it’s time to relieve himself for the night, he acts like outside is a strange place. Standing at the wide open door, I pointed out and said very firmly, “Buddy, go pee.” To which he answered by whining and lying down. “Come on, Buddy, Mommy had a rough day, please go pee!”

Buddy huffed loudly and rested his head on his paws. Not wanting to spend the next hour arguing with my dog for the entire neighborhood to watch, I went to my last resort. I bent over, half picking him up and half dragging him outside to use the bathroom. Once on the grass, he lifted his leg and did his business then walked back inside on his own accord.

About Leah Spiegel and Megan Summers

Although we moved down to North Carolina several years ago, we’re originally from the Pittsburgh area. (That’s why a lot of our characters either live in the Burgh or reference our hometown football team, The Pittsburgh Steelers.) And yes, we even have the Southern accents to show for it now. Although Megan’s is considerable thicker, Leah still can’t understand the locals.

We are known as ‘the sisters’ among our neighborhood; when actually we’re probably really known as ‘the sisters with the Yorkies’. Our pups, Skippy Jon Jones and Captain Jack Sparrow, were given long names to compensate for their small size but not their large personalities.
If Leah’s not glued to her electronic devices, AKA her Kindle Fire and various laptops, you can find her training ‘the attack dogs’, running on the treadmill while conceiving the next great book idea with the Dave Matthews Band, Muse, Florence and the Machine, The Lumineers, and Pink (just to name a few) blaring out of her earphones.
If Megan’s not glued to her electronic devices AKA her iPad and Nook Color, you can find her teaching fourth graders, swimming marathon style at the pool, or cuddling with ‘the attack dogs’ as she watches Duck Dynasty, Gold Rush, Scandal, Person of Interest, Morning Joe, etc.
Leah graduated from Edinboro University with a BA in Art Education. Megan received her teaching degree from Edinboro University and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Technology from Grand Canyon University.

  5. Oh, interesting summary! I hadn’t heard of this one before. It sounds a bit like Pretty Little Liars in a way…based on what I know, as I’ve never read the books or seen much of the show. hah

      I was getting excited there. the main reason why I’ve been so antisocial lately is because I am absolutely addicted to Pretty Little Liars. LOL.
