Young [ DRAFT ]
"You bought me sunshine,
when I only saw rain.
You bought me laughter,
when I only felt pain."
- Donna Donathan.
"I'm Eileen James, and I avoid speaking as much as possible."
For seventeen-year-old Eileen James, emotion and communication is an obstacle. Having faced situations that one would not expect a young girl such as her to have been through, her life consists of following orders, keeping quiet and projecting a cold exterior.
But when a boy who's the exact opposite of Eileen pushes himself into her life and fills it with warmth, Eileen finds her barricade slipping - breaking apart. Together, they'll fix everything broken in their lives. Together, they'll fix each other.
Together, they'll help each other grow up from the young teenagers they are.
