This is Where I Tell You Everything
When you've wanted out your whole life, what do you do when something's suddenly pulling you back in?
For seventeen-year-old Chelsea Honeycutt leaving home has been her number one priority for about as long as she can remember. There isn't much for her in her small town of Middleton, Ohio, except the painful memory of losing her mother to cancer. With the fresh start of junior year ahead of her, Chelsea feels a step closer to her goal. But things don't always go as planned. For once, Middleton has thrown Chelsea a curveball. Enter her new neighbors: Victor Holt, his fiancée Sylvia, and his twin sons, Lincoln and Larkin.
From the moment Chelsea lays eyes on the two devastatingly handsome boys she notices the stark contrast between them and the usual everyday life that is the residents of Middleton. Both seem to be in their own form of pain and they both handle it different ways, Lincoln in fights and Larkin with girls. Getting to know her new neighbors isn't quite an option, for one, Lincoln makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with Chelsea, and then there's Larkin with his odd sense of friendly banter that leaves Chelsea wondering if she's the butt of his jokes.
Leaving the boys alone is a tough, but simple task, after all, Chelsea has her own issues, coping with her mother's death has been everything but easy. However, once she and Lincoln reach common ground and draw close, Chelsea finds herself torn being staying in the town she's despised her whole life, or leaving behind a boy who needs her far more than she could've ever imagined.
