    Summary

    Beca is an up and coming producer, Chloe Beale is pop’s newest princess. This is the story of how they fall in love.

    "Beca Mitchell, producer of just-barely-notable-but-growing-in-notoriety songs like “Lightning Street” by Albion Avalon and “Esorcus” by Palindromes, is a bit of a mystery player. When you Google her name, you’ll see her production credits on Snoop Dogg’s Christmas CD, and a few other major artists from her time with Residual Heat. You’ll see a few grainy clips of her DJing at some of the hottest L.A. clubs, showing off a flare for that perfect fade from one song to another over a thumping and heavy bass. You’ll even find a few of those mixes perfected into glorious mash-ups that hipsters the world over crave."

    "The Billboard Hot 100 chart’s record for most number-one singles from one album to appear is five, shared by Katy Perry and Michael Jackson. The song playing on the radio as Chloe Beale sits down for an interview in Chicago, just before she blows the doors off the at-capacity United Center, is Beale’s fourth from her second album, Cotillion."

    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

    Summary

    Kara doesn’t tell her about the hologram of Alura, about the spy beacon she keeps hidden in her night stand, perpetually glowing, waiting for the touch of its twin, but she says, “Sometimes, I talk to them. My mother and her sister – my aunt. Just about my day, my job, my friends and family. It’s ...”

    “Cathartic,” Lena supplies. Kara was going to say ‘comforting’, but doesn’t correct her. “Sometimes,” Lena whispers, “I talk to Lex.”

    (Much later, Kara will think of Lex, still alive, sitting in maximum security, and wonder what Lena meant.)

    or

    A lot can happen in the space of a year; Kara and Lena know this better than most.
