Shelby Gore has never missed being in church one Sunday in her entire life, she’s a 4.0 GPA student. Why do a lot of students, even several teachers would like to see her get expelled. The girl does have a reputation for being boy-crazy without ever having one relationship. She is often seen driving her Dad’s company pickup and her Mom’s Buick, without having a driver’s license. Usually she just takes her skate-board down through the middle of town, stopping at the town square to flirt with the old men who spend their days there.
Cedarville is a quiet little South Missouri town of 1400, over 1,000 employees including Shelby’s Dad work at the local steel plant. Within the next hour there will be five dead bodies as students watch a scene unfold in total disbelief. This kind of thing should not happen in broad day-light or any other time in a small South Missouri town.
There are Lots of Stories in a Small Town.
Cedarville, Missouri has a weekly Newspaper, which usually is at least one half made up of ads for Youngs Family & Home Center. Have YOU Heard? is a section dedicated to local gossip, church news, and what’s going on at our local schools.
Young’s makes use of a local girl to model clothes for one ad each week, she keeps the clothes and wears them to school. All the girls at Cedarville High, want what is IN FASHION. Shelby Gore is the trend setter ever since she was only twelve years old; she’s always looked older than she is. Her looks get her talked about, but there are many other reasons this girl is the talk of Cedarville.
