Amy Brown feels in colors. She sees in nothing but color. It's left her with no friends, a family that can't deal with her, and an irritable personality. This came after the death of Amy's father, and her only way to cope with losing him is to visit the pond in the woods where he used to take her growing up. It was their place. 
It wasn't until one day, by Amy's pond, where she spots a boy watching her. Without conversation, they sit together on the edge of the pond. And it happens the next day. And the day after that. 
Before you know it Amy is closer to him than she is to her own sister. Aaron is her best friend, only friend, the person getting her through everything. He becomes her lifeline and it doesn't seem like she would be getting through everything without him. They do everything together - until the day Amy's mother sends her to rehab for an LSD addiction. 
Aaron disappears - only returning on sudden flashbacks. He isn't there to get her through everything anymore, he is gone along with the tablets Amy missed so much. 
It wasn't until after rehab when Amy meets a boy, Aaron, who looks identical to the boy she created on her LSD trip. They have the same story, the same connection, but how? How can she be sure he is real, even when she's not up in the trees.

Very nice :) I'm still planning to read the first chapter, but the prologue seems promising. I love the imagery you create in it. On to the first chapter.

I liked this as it had a lot of imagery as well as being poetic and well written. The main character seems introverted, always an interesting quality and the magical place she goes to is described to fit her feelings just right.
