Kendall Carney always had her head in a book.
Alex Gaskarth was your typical punk high school senior.
What do two polar opposites have in common? An English teacher who gives a pen pal project.
The catch? You don't know the other person's name. All you know is their address.

Dear Book-Girl,
Everyday at school, from the second I step out of my car, I'm searching for you. I look for anybody who fits your description of yourself. But I keep coming up empty handed. Maybe I'm looking too hard and you're right in front of me, but maybe I'm not looking hard enough. Maybe you're sitting in that one corner I forget to check everyday during lunch reading a book. Maybe you're not even real. Maybe this is all a dream and all of these emotions I feel while writing you aren't real. Maybe.
Love Your Pen Pal,
Guitar-Guy
