Meet Clarissa Avery. She's 16 and a sophomore in high school. She's shy around people she doesn't know, and quiet around others. She lives with her brother James, who's 18 and her legal guardian. She has only three close friends, and that's all she's ever really needed. Her friends would describe her as a hard worker, trusting and compassionate. She's having a blast until James' best friends' cousin, Cody, comes to live with them. And with a new roommate beings past memories that Clarissa's desperately trying to forget. Follow Clarissa through her crazy, mixed up life as she tries to come to terms with both the past and future. What happens when someone she hasn't seen in years comes back to reclaim what's rightfully his? Somebody has a lot of explaining to do and suddenly the world seems suffocating. With already so much going on, what will a new love interest bring? Here's to thinking life would be easy. P.S. I do somewhat of a lot of Spanish and Italian translations in this story. For that, I use google translate so if something is wrong, I apologize.
