‘The Birthmark’ By Ashleigh Underwood

Stacy is the new girl in town. This isn’t her first move but she is hoping it would be the last. She quickly makes friends and even manages a date to the Sadie Hawkins dance. The first thing people notice about her is her tattoo-like birthmark, the number nine so clear on her wrist. There would be no reason for a birthmark to change, would there?
