She was the one who timidly hid alone in the back of the library, her nose buried in countless books. He was the one who was surrounded by heaps of fellow students, mindlessly causing destruction with every chance he had received. 

She was the one who could never overstep her own boundaries, in fear that she would lose everyone that she loved around her. He was the one who never knew his own restrictions, silently hoping that everything wouldn't crumble to bits before him.

What could've been the only similarity two polar opposites shared? Traumatic pasts continuously haunted them every living moment of their lives.

~ ~ ~

Meet Averylyn Mitchell, an insecure girl who only wanted to try to fit in with the people around her, in hopes that she wouldn't be different from everyone for once. When she abruptly moved from the home she knew all her life in New York City to a small town in the countryside of Minnesota, it wasn't at all what she expected. Every day was pure torture for her to only feel out of place from everyone.

On the other hand, Walden Bradley was inevitably furious with the people around him, for reasons that others couldn't seem to understand. Despite his reasons for his sudden anger at times, fellow students couldn't help but envy the most-liked boy in high school, who had everything he could ever want right at his fingertips. Others knew that he couldn't care less about anyone other than himself.

Both individuals had secrets that they didn't dare to tell anyone, but how can broken hearts ever recover from the past without learning what comes in the future? Moving on from the past is not as simple as people say because we never truly forget the events that lead up to our futures.

Can a self-conscious, naive girl and a selfish, conceited boy balance each other out and learn the true meaning of love and life?

Just a quick query ' every year turns into an ordinary day' to me, in my personal opinion, was a little bit confusing

Nice start - making us aware of the final outcome before going through the story

I hate to repeat myslef but again, although I like the fish out of water storyline, I find the tense and phrasing hard to read. This is obviously only my personal opinion but I would recommend getting an editor on Wattpad to help iron out that syntax of your piece.

I prefer the writing style of the italic bits as it is more descriptive.

Again, although I love the story of girl moves town, I feel as though you have missed opportunities for description
