Abuse. Abandonment. Self-Injury. Self-hatred. These are the thing Brooklyn has endured the last three years of her life. Brooklyn was abandoned by her mother during her freshman year in high school, leaving her alone with the one true monster that never actually hid under her bed: her abusive father. Each day is a struggle for Brooklyn, as she continues to self-harm and loathe the weak girl that stares back at her in the mirror.
Brooklyn lives by the motto: you gotta keep your head up and letcha hair down. She covers the bruises, hides the scars and avoids telling the truth of what truly happens behind her closed curtains. But when a new neighbor named Drew moves in next door and Brooklyn is given an English assignment, she is challenged for the first time in her life to tell the utter and complete truth. The sad part is, Brooklyn's been living a lie for so long that she isn't even sure what's reality anymore.
Brooklyn's story is an internal conflict turned battle in fighting for her self-worth as she's continually told (and believes) she is worthless. Will Brooklyn finally, finally able to confess the hell she's been living through for years, or will she be pushed to the point of no return?
