    Summary

    “Who are you? What do you want from me?”

    “Do you want your brother back or not?”

    “You didn’t answer my question.”

    “Those things are unimportant. Do you want your brother back?”

    Zoe paused for a moment. He had hurt her so much. He was a monster, and now he was gone. She should be happy. But she wasn’t. Why was it that she missed that monster? No, she didn’t miss him, she missed the Connor she had known when they were little; the Connor who had been her best friend. Slowly, she nodded her head.

    “I will give you the chance to get your brother back, the brother you used to know. I only have one condition.”

    “And what’s that?” Zoe inquired, stiffening as she grew more suspicious.

    “You have to save him.”

    Summary

    Alana is a lost girl in high school who tries too hard to fit in with those around her.

    Zoe is a broken daughter in a broken family who needs something good to hold onto.

    Evan is an anxiety-ridden boy who doesn't know how to connect with those around him.

    Connor is a troubled teenager who can't seem to find any light in the world or himself.

    Jared is an insecure loner who uses humor to compensate for how he feels inside.

    But when Connor's attempted suicide fails and all five are connected to the event, how will their stories unravel? Will they find love and friendship, or will they continue to face the world alone?

    Summary

    Even through the haze of grief right after Connor died, there were moments that stuck through. Moments of clarity, of happiness, of extreme sorrow. Moments when she could see everything through her old viewpoint, even when she could barely stand without feeling like she was falling.

    Even years later, Zoe remembered the endless arrival of cut flowers.

    Summary

    We crave human contact; not long-drifted, glassy eyes separated by a plane ride and a glint of glass and a thick layer of dirt and words printed on a page. There’s something quite different in finally finding a pair of eyes that look into yours and don’t look right through them.

    Summary

    Now, she’d toss and turn all night until eventually exhaustion took over, forcing the echoing voices inside of her head to silence. Ironically, that was her favorite time-when she was forced to have a clear mind as her body finally couldn’t handle any thoughts. The hours before, however, were the worst. With only dark and silence, she was forced to confront the angry, taunting voice in her mind, and the little boy that always looked so damn sad, and the anxious smile that seemed to be the image her brain most reverted to.

    Summary

    The thing was… her dad was icing her out lately.

    Zoe liked to pretend she didn’t understand why, but. She knew. She’d always known. There were sides in this house, in this family. If you switched sides… well. The thing was that you weren’t allowed to switch sides. There was no going back once you chose a side. And Zoe had just spit in the face of all of those rules.

    Following the rules might have meant losing Connor for good, and since the fall that. It wasn’t an option. She wasn’t willing to let that happen. She didn’t even totally understand why. He was still an asshole.But she didn’t want him dead and for Zoe that was reason enough to bail on the Zoe and Larry vs Connor vs Cynthia cage match that had been their lives since she was in middle school.

    Zoe and her dad, well. They had been close. For years they had been close. They did stuff together. And now he spoke to her in short bursts and never met her eye. Zoe hated it.
