Rei's a runner—fast, smart, doesn't ask questions, and keeps her mouth shut about the errands she runs. She doesn't know what's in the packages she delivers and she doesn't care. It's simpler that way. But Rei's soon-to-be-ex, Sam, has gotten under her skin, and she's started thinking about the effects of her errands. Can Rei be close to someone and do her job—and can she make a choice before it's too late? ABANDON CHANGES is a short story by John M. Cusick, set in the same world as his compulsively readable debut novel, GIRL PARTS. This story includes a sneak peek at the first few chapters of GIRL PARTS.
