Jason Grimwald is different. He's dark, gloomy, and scary.
All his life he's isolated himself from everyone except his little brother, Mason and his guardian, Uncle Harry. You see, if you had what Jason has, you'd do the same thing.
But when you isolate yourself, people notice you. They notice how weird you are, and how psycho you seem, and they give you funny nicknames like Grimm because you remind then of the Grim Reaper. They don't know your story so they'll make one up, they won't bother trying to understand you because what's the point? Eventually they go away, they all do. They all stop wondering and eventually, they give up.
Well, all but one.
Meet Donna Shapiro, a quiet and smart individual. Ever since elementary school, everyone, and especially boys, loved her. Almost everyone wanted to be her friend but she hated that. She preferred being alone, writing, listening to music, reading, and wondering about Jason.
The moment their eyes met in grade 6, she became curious. She wondered why the kid never talked, and why he seemed so... Interesting.
Of course she was always to shy to make the first move, until now.
Usually Jason ignored whenever people interacted with him, but this time it was different, she's different. The moment the two of them become involved, BOTH their worlds are turned upside down.
