Shattered to Pieces
Lydia, Naomi, Ryder, and Calvin have been best friends since they first met when they were seven. They stick by each others side through thick and thin, so when Lydia mysteriously goes MIA for the first week of sophomore year; it's safe to say the friends are more then concerned.
Following a chain of tragic events, Lydia is left broken mentally and physically. Unable to socialize with other people, having night terrors that sound like she's being murdered, and scary moments when she'll black out are all side-affects of an incident she refuses to share.
Naomi, Ryder, and Calvin have no idea what to do. Lydia's older sister is the only one who knows the truth, but her lips are sealed tight. Does Ryder have something to do with it? After his summer fling with Lydia, he's left to wonder if she could simply be suffering from a broken heart. But with this much pain, it's more likely that something much, much worse occurred.
