For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37)
Jasper is a screwed up kid, yet no one cares enough to find out why. Bruises hide his arms and alcohol stains the walls of his house, but he pushes forward because it's the only thing left for him to do. His days are spent in and out of the school psychologist's office, while his nights are spent in fear of his father. His guitar and the secluded spot by the train tracks where he likes to play are the only saving graces in the hell that is his life. No one disrupted this normal routine until Callie came.

Callie is far from screwed up; she doesn't have family issues and doesn't understand the first thing about Jasper's world. Her house is filled with answered prayers and smiles of people who love each other. Her arms are clear and her head is full of optimism that Jasper doesn't buy for a second. She never second guessed her sunny disposition on life until she stumbled upon a boy and his guitar down by the train tracks.

Callie and Jasper weren't supposed to cross paths. She wasn't supposed to care and he wasn't supposed to let her get under his skin, but then again opposites weren't supposed to attract either.   Callie saw the good in him where most people thought there was none ; she was captivated by Jasper because he made her question everything she knew about the world.

She thought it would be easy to teach him that there was still good left in the world, that there was more beyond all the bad he'd become accustomed to. She thought fixing him would be easy, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy and sometimes it takes more than one girl's overly optimistic persistence to pull a person out of the hell they've been living in; sometimes it takes faith and realizing that some things can't be done without it...

                              Jasper said that there was another brother wasn't there?? He kept insisting that he had a little brother in the beginning and at the therapy lesson. I think this means that his brother died somehow...

Now I'm automatically jealous of the girl he will fall in love with
The first sentence in this paragraph is amazing. How ur comparing smoke alcohol and tension and how they taint the air is AWESOME.
