"You know, there are two reasons why people don't talk about things; either it means nothing to them or it means everything."

           It's a year after Connor Mathews committed suicide, leaving his best friend Danielle lost and confused. The two shared everything since they were kids, so where were the signs? Why did Connor believe the world would be better off without him?

           Danielle is familiar with loss, but this news hits her like a bullet. Connor and Danielle were partners in crime. But with Connor gone, Danielle is just a lonely outsider with a slight temper and a high probability to self-destruct.

           After a few unlikely encounters that create a few unlikely friendships, Danielle begins to wonder if maybe not all surprises are bad. But without the answers she needs to erase the ambiguity surrounding Connor's death, how will she maintain a healthy life? Is it possible to live happily even in the face of everlasting unanswerable questions?

Love they intro, especially the last sentence. Did you mean "hands" though in the second sentence?

Wow ! rumors are the new true to people : so sad people don't take the time to know you before they open their minds to untrue rumors, before they get the chances to know you, your true.

For me it's more about hating myself and trying to forget myself but I'm a sad person so same difference, I guess. lol

How is it that we can find good in others, but we always find ourselves undeserving?
