All It Takes
"I may not be one of those perfect, wide-eyed and bright boys you've read about and fallen in love with, but I know that I am perfect for you and you only."
Hazel Ryland never seemed to fit in with the glossy haired, long-legged, and the graceful crowd of popular girls at her school. Always seeing the brighter side in the wordy pages of her favorite books, she never paid attention to the real things that surrounded her. Focused on college and trying to climb out of the death trap high school is, she never found time to live outside of textbooks and typed essays. Her life comes tumbling down--quite literally--when she runs into the blonde haired Thor of her school--Lars Millegan. He shows her the other side to high school and how to take the universe into her own hands and write her own story, rather than fantasizing about a life never lived. Lars pushes her to realize that fiction will never amount to reality, no matter how entranced she may be or how swoon worthy the main love interest is. She interacts with a whole different side to him, one that he hides away from the judging eyes of the student body and college scouts. Hazel views his interactions with the ones he truly loves and deeply cares for, including her. And that's all it takes for her to see that a life well lived needs to be with people who build her up to be the best author of her own story.
