Drowning (Book 1 of the Depressed Series)
"What's depression like?" He asks, his eyes seeking truth from mine.
"It's like drowning. Except you can see everyone else breathing."
Lucas is a popular prep school kid whose never had to worry about much in life. The most he's lost is a dog and that was from old age. He's an amazing artist and plays the bass guitar in a band know as 'Prepped Boys'. To him, life was good. Of course his mother was almost never around because of her job that forces her to fly around the country, but his father works at home and plays catch with him every other day. He's dark haired with light green eyes. In the end, he had two parents that loved him more than anything else in the world.
Ava was his polar opposite in more than just temperament. Her life was a spinning vortex of pill popping, money obsessed 'step moms' a clueless, sweet-hearted father who felt it was more important his girlfriends had real fur coats than that Ava have healthy foods. She was made fun of since she was five. After so many years she learned to cope with sometimes crushing depression that was now apart of her life. She grew up beautiful, but after a date with a boy she thought she loved turned into a date rape nightmare right out of a cautionary tale, she hid her beauty under dark makeup, dyed the tips of her hair purple and let the storm in her soul be expressed in her eyes. She wore black, none of her clothes showed off her slim figure. She goes to public school.
Suddenly, these two totally different people are shoved together when the Public school catches fire, burning it almost to the ground before the Firemen came to put it out, meaning all the Public School students were forced to go to Private school till it was rebuilt.
Will these two be able to get along, or are they just too different?
