Faggot. Worthless. Fat. Waste of space. Failure.
These words run through Ashton Irwin's mind on a daily basis. Bullied at school, abused by his father at home, he finds his escape in the only thing he can trust. His blade.
Until it nearly kills him.
His mother takes him away from everything, and, in hope to make a new start, they move house and he joins a new school.
Where he meets the one and only Luke Hemmings, who only wants to make him smile.
But Ashton thinks it's too late for him to be saved.
