Summary:

I've been eighteen for the past 63 years. Now, something you need to understand: this isn't considered abnormal in my reality. In fact, it's extremely common. Our society was born with the ability to maintain our youth. However, the aging process continues after we've found our significant other. That way we can grow old together. Sure, it sounds like a fairytale; a dream come true. But when you've been sitting around in the same body for so many years, being eternally eighteen doesn't sound so enticing.

Summary:

"I'm the reason my best friend is dead."

College is a time to start from scratch, to start over, to find yourself. Dash, who survived a car crash her best friend Danny did not, desperately needs a fresh start. But with PTSD episodes from the smallest of triggers and her cheating ex-boyfriend constantly showing up on campus, she isn't sure how to.

She can't find a friend in her roommate, who appears to be the spawn of Godzilla and Barbie, and her very first philosophy class sends her reeling with conversations about death and the afterlife she isn't ready to face. Dash is determined to prove to herself and her parents that she can handle being on her own at school, but struggles to separate her present day from her dark dreams. And it becomes even more confusing when she gets involved with Tyler who also has a past he wants to avoid.

Can she overcome the mental scars the accident left her with, or will she carry them forever?

Summary:

Meet Lin, a normal student on the outside. But behind the scenes she swindles of the rich. Not only out of necessity, partially because she wants to. All her past events hardened her. She is rude, selfish and calculating to others. Even to her colleagues she doesn't open up.

Will a blooming love dispatch this façade she had built up for years? And awake her true nature buried deep down in her heart? Or will this backfire and make her hate blossom further and erase the little compassion she had left?

Summary:

Russell is a virtuous goth with a Christian upbringing. Sal is a carefree slack-off who would rather work retail than go to college. It was hate at first sight. Until they were forced to partner up in class. After their true feelings surface, Sal learns just how different he is from Russell, and all seems hopeless. How can their relationship last, if Sal is asexual? And that's not their only problem.

Surprisingly unpredictable, The Riveting Lives of Russell and Sal is about two social outcasts that become the most unlikely couple imaginable.
