The Extraordinary Life of Violet Grey
*probably the strangest teen fiction book you have ever read*
Violet Grey was classified as a wallflower. Hiding in the shadows and roaming under radar was her game.
Hurting on the inside due to Charles Bonnet Syndrome, she resorts to a life of depression, shutting off even the slightest of emotion towards people.
But not before she discovers Drexel Gardner aka, the most charming player at Gettysburg High School.
"I'm sorry, Drexel. I'm sorry for not standing up for myself. I'm just weak, too weak for anything," I cried, brushing away a tear.
My shoulders shook like crashing waves on a shore and I felt Drexel wrap his arms around me once again. I could feel his warm breath softly hitting my ear. "Little lilac, crying isn't a sign of weakness. It's the sign of having tried too much to be strong for too long."
And maybe she was weak...but he made her strong.
