  2. Summary

    They’re all fucked up kids. They’re all patched up quilts of chaos, pieces of who they were stitched together with trauma and pain and age to the people they’re becoming. They’re not the works of art Will portrays them as in his sketchbook. They’re not heroes as Mike sets them up to be in their games. They’re not special—not even El or Will, not really. They’re all just shattered teenagers, stooping to pick up the pieces before they can glue them back together as best they can.

    So yeah, Mike muses as he pulls out his notebook to jot down the thought. Maybe they’re all a little broken, but that’s how the light gets in.

    Summary

    Carlos lets his hand trace all the way up to the front of Seb’s shirt, over his collar, to the warm, damp skin of his throat. He can feel Seb’s pulse under his fingers, thudding at a brisk allegro pace.

    “Can I kiss you?” he whispers.

    Seb—his gaze searing in its intensity, his heartbeat hammering faster and faster—nods.

    Alternatively: Seb and Carlos share an umbrella.

    Summary

    “Oh, sweetheart,” murmurs Joyce. “I know it’s not easy.”

    This doesn’t feel not easy. This feels impossible—impossible, adjective, I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E. Something you can’t do, even if you really want to, even when you try your hardest. Saving Hop was impossible, Joyce had told her. Living without him feels impossible, too.

    (Or, El Hopper, and learning how to heal.)

    Summary

    “I made a friend today,” Will announced happily, as he bounded into the kitchen with his brother trailing behind him.

    “She’s invisible,” added Jonathan, with a subtly sarcastic flourish of the hands. At nine years old, he’d mastered the art of making fun of his little brother without spoiling his games.

    She gave him a grateful and in-on-it smile.

    “No, she’s sy-kick,” Will corrected. “Her name is El.”
