Loved, Scared and Lonely
Alia Townsen, (A-lie-a), is a normal fifteen year old girl. She is homeschooled, has two parents who love each other and her very much, and three annoying younger siblings.
But in the midst of all that, Alia feels very alone. No one understands her, the real her, and frankly no one cares. She doesn't have any real friends, just a couple people she texts every so often.
There's a reason Alia is an outcast. There's a reason she spends most of her time in her house, in her bedroom. She has social anxiety, and that makes her scared to do the simplest things.
She gets teased about it by her siblings, and her parents make her do things she hates doing. None of them has ever made a move to understand her, they don't even know about her anxiety. Alia is just told to "get over it." Well, that would be nice. But you can't get over social anxiety. It is a disorder, not a cold.
So she goes through her days, Loved, Scared, and Lonely.
This is the sequel to "Unloved, Married and Pregnant... at 18???," but it can easily be read as a stand alone novel as the characters are different.
