Synopsis

Some days are brighter than others, but Penelope Finnel has been taught she can be invisible behind the colored lenses of her heart-shaped sunglasses.

Her mind is her worst enemy, and simply waking up in the morning is risky. For a kid like her, staying in bed is easier, especially when the day has come to start school in a new town with new kids who don’t understand that the clouds are not the only reason everything is so gloomy.

Dillon Decker is a typical boy from a typical small town who radiates light and happiness. Under the hovering glare from her father, Dillon leads Penelope around on his bicycle’s handlebars, hoping he is the cure to her madness.

But when friend turns to lover, and lover turns to caretaker, how much can either of them tolerate before they’re swallowed whole?

A story about moving trucks and rollerblades, candy for smiles, and notes across lawns.

First loves and the struggle to keep it sane.

The true love way.

abouttheauthor

Mary Elizabeth is an up and coming author who finds words in chaos, writing stories about the skeletons hanging in your closets. Known as The Realist, she is one half of The Elizabeths—a duo brave enough to never hide the truth. Born and raised in Southern California, she’s a wife, mother of four beautiful children, and dog tamer to one enthusiastic Pit Bull and a prissy Chihuahua. She’s a hairstylist by day but contemporary fiction, new adult author by night. Mary can often be found finger twirling her hair and chewing on a stick of licorice while writing and rewriting a sentence over and over until it’s perfect. She discovered her talent for tale-telling accidentally, but literature is in her stranglehold. And she’s not letting go until every story is told.

“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure.”–Jeremiah 17:9

Excerpt

My dad stares at me like I just told him there’s a dental theories’ seminar for nerd dentists like himself he wasn’t invited to.

No, better than that.

His face reminds me of that time he realized a grown man had stolen his lucky molar spreader from his office after an extraction and was forced to buy a new, unlucky one.

“Are you sure you’re ready?” Dad clears his throat, shutting the door so that Mom doesn’t hear our conversation.

Sex is natural, it happens, and it’s a part of becoming a man. Dad told me all of this when he was naming parts on a plastic uterus, and now he wants to know if I’m ready. I wasn’t ready for hair to grow on my balls, but that happened.

I wonder how many M&M’s Coach Finnel will give me if I make Pen smile during sex.

Those should count as double.

“Considering Penelope’s condition, Dillon, committing to a physical relationship with her isn’t very wise.”

“She’s sad sometimes,” I say, swallowing my anger. “Not dying.”

Pulling the rolling chair out from behind his desk, he sits and takes his glasses off. Dad pinches the bridge of his nose before continuing. “There’s more to it than that, Dillon. Especially in children, and that’s exactly what the two of you are.”

5 stars!

Epic book hangover!!! There’s nothing more to say, really. I had high expectations for this one, if you’ve read the Dusty series, so would you. To say that I devoured each page would be an understatement. Poetic, raw, emotional and true way!

For Penelope, getting out of bed every morning is a true struggle. No one understands though. And then Dillon happens.

“Don’t you get it Dillon? There’s a reason why you’re my only friend. Why haven’t you figured this out yet?”

He’s there every day, picking her clothes, brushing her hair, walking to school with her, taking every day for what it’s worth. He’s in charge of making her smile as much as possible – he even gets paid in candy! – and he doesn’t mind one bit that he always has to see her eyes covered. He’s hands down the greatest book boyfriend from the first to the last page, all the ages, all the transformations, he’s the best!

I love the progress of the story, I loved all the tiny details that made an amazing whole; the variety of sunglasses, the window late night talks, the candy, Pen’s father – possibly the best father I’ve read in a book and actually this book has a strong parental presence which was refreshing since most books just ship them off somewhere far far away – kinda loved that dude, every little thing!

“What are you looking at, boy?”

In a unique and familiar way, Mary Elizabeth creates the sweetest and realest story that starts from a very young age and develops with time. Poetic and raw writing that can become addictive and unique expressions the readers grow to love, this story gave me a huge book hangover, I can’t even begin to list the feels, ALL THE FEELS!
