The Tulip Touch
There's something about Tulip. Natalie is drawn to her from the first day they meet. The other kids at school are afraid of Tulip, who comes from an abusive family, but Natalie can't resist her deviant charm. It's exciting spending time with Tulip. Tulip has the ability to tell a lie so elaborate and outrageous, you want to believe her story even though you know it's not true. They call it "The Tulip Touch." And nobody thinks up games like Tulip's. They start out rather innocently. Stinking Mackerel. Road of Bones. Hogs in a Tunnel. But soon the games become more complicated -- and more dangerous. Natalie knows she must do something to break free from Tulip's spell. But does she have the strength to save herself ... and Tulip?
