Dan Howell is the shy, mute kid in his last year of school; diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and anything else on society's list that would label him as a stereotypical "freak."

Drawn more to poetry than social interaction, Dan gets good grades and has a good reputation. Well, except for the fact that he's constantly bullied. Whether it's because he practically leaks homosexuality, or because he somehow stands out in the sea of students at his school, both of which are highly illogical, Dan is constantly teased and pushed around.

That is, until he meets Phil Lester.

Once they run into each other, Phil, the sex-on-legs, badass punk of the school constantly saves Dan from his bullies more than once. But, being associated with such a bad boy isn't good news. Especially when Dan finds himself developing feelings for the boy who's known for cigarettes, drugs, and one-night stands.

But what Dan doesn't know, is that there's more to Phil than what meets the eye, and he only knows the beginning of it.


Trigger Warning: strong language, mentions of self-harm, death, depression, anxiety, bullying, domestic abuse, gay slurs, mutism, sexual content, and attempted suicide.
