Shutters, lawn nomes, and chimneys. Down on Oak Lane sit two houses next door to each other. Just feet away from each other, a fence the only thing between the houses, live two very different people.

Under one roof hides a virgin afraid to talk to people her own age. Hiding behind thick glasses, and hard cover books, the school mute - Charlie Woods- lives left to the infamous of Griffin Holmes.

In 97 Oak Lane Griffin Holmes is in his own personal prison. Griffin Holmes, the convicted delinquent who use to break and enter because he was bored, the juvenile thug who use to have an illegal underground tattooing ring, the bad boy that set the major's car ablaze because he is angsty, and psychotic.

Griffin Holmes has had his final drive in the back of police cars, strapped down with an ankle bracelet Griffin Holmes in under house arrest for murder. Now off the streets Griffin, the town psychopath is now just behind that little fence every hour of everyday, right next to Charlie Woods.

Thanks to for this masterpiece of a cover!

Just so you people know... there's a difference between psychotic and psychopathic. And here if we're talking about a psychopath (as the title says), that person should be psychopathic. Unless he's psychotic too... That would be a scary combo lol
lol I thought she was short but then I realized we're the same size lmao

I don't find that psychotic and crazy I find that as a reaction of something

Girl you are just sad and naive why would u do that, even though I understand that it's your personality but still why... I would leave him and go back to sleep tbh

The cover of the actual book, looks like a photoshopped Andy Biersack picture. XD
