“Can two scarred souls make each other whole?”
I’ve never given thoughts to any relationship with anyone. All I want is to start medical school and keep full focus on my education. At least, that’s what I used to want. Meeting Josh one rainy night changes everything.
All I’ve ever wanted is someone to love me for me; without caring about my past or my scars or my personality disorder. But since I’m scarred both inside and out, used and abused by the person who was supposed to protect me, who can ever look past my exterior to see what’s underneath?
“Life’s about to take one hell of a turn.”
My life’s been nothing but a struggle. The last three years, however, have been better. I’m in a committed relationship—like, hey, how did that happen? I’ve got several friends—good ones too! I’ve got my family—such as it is. Everything’s good, but it’s all shattered when my stepfather’s released from prison.
I know him better than anyone. I know he’s vindictive. I know he hates e for putting him in prison for years. And I know someone’s following me around, always out of sight. Everyone says I’m paranoid, and maybe I am, but what if he’s out there to get me?
These books contain depictions of self-harm and suicide attempts, flashbacks to abuse, and mentions of abuse and non-consensual sex.
