"When something happens, it's often said that we lose a part of ourselves."

From the summer of fourth grade and the summer before Freshmen year, Ella Nowak witnessed this first-hand. Now entering high school without her twin sister, Kayla, alongside her, Ella is friendless, devastated, and in pieces. She's caught between trying to live life and to escape from it. Most of all, she doesn't know who she is besides "Kayla's Sister". This can be the perfect time to understand who she is, but the thought of possibly forgetting Kayla terrifies Ella. The best solution is to be Kayla, right? But what happens when Ella starts getting involved with Kayla's ex-boyfriend Kyle Goldberg? Or when her ex-friend Savannah Curtis drags her into a world of crazy friends and constant partying?
This is my entry for the Open Novella Contest 2020. I chose prompt 4:

 "When something tragic happens, it's often said we lose a piece of ourselves. How far would you go to find those lost parts of yourself in order to be whole again?"
