    Summary

    Touch with Billy Hargrove often meant getting fresh stitches plucked open. For Camille Harper, he'd risk it.

    Camille was Queen Bee of Hawkins High School. The teen dream. Billy wanted her for it. No use lying about that much. But, they get more than they bargained for when two messy lives from opposite ends of town intertwine. Secrets unravel between them when one dimension bleeds into another. Camille is a girl just trying to do better when Billy barges into her life and new pieces come together. Maybe not all the ones they wanted. He gets tangled into her lavish existence. Rich girl. Absent parents. A mystery that blooms, threatening everything they built. And three little numbers: 006.

    Summary

    Harrington breezes past him without so much as a glance his way. He feels the heat rise in him again, more insistent this time, and in a blink, he finds his fist has clenched itself resolutely in Harrington’s preppy jacket.

    Harrington looks at him with—Billy’s vision goes red—polite confusion. Like he doesn’t know him. Like he isn't afraid.

    In the back of his mind, Billy can feel his conscience trying to reason with him. Remember when you used to be happy? It asks him. Remember how you used to smile and people would smile back at you, and they liked you? It prompts, showing him those same faded memories that Max’s superhero friend had dredged up.

    Billy breathes, and Harrington continues to look concerned, and finally Billy releases him as he thinks, Fine. Thinks: This isn’t my Harrington anyway.

    -

    Or, the one where Billy Hargrove is snatched from the claws of death at the very last minute, tumbled into a world that isn't quite his own, and manages to learn a few things about himself along the way.
