The pictures used in this book do not belong to me. What happens when the system fails us, when we are judged based on looks and we are factions, when most are beautiful and some are un-beautiful. What happens when some are loveless and some are bathed in it. Those with the biggest smiles are those with broken souls. Is it a crime, to rebel, to love, to lust.
