Chasing Starlight | EDITING
"She was right," I sob. "Happiness doesn't last forever."
Jax does nothing. He stares at me for a long while before he finally takes my hands gently and looks into my eyes. "Neither does sadness."
Love is a curious thing. It's something Cheryl Johnson feels she's never had after her mother was erased from her life. Friendless, hopeless, and her life full of lies and restrictions from her father, a once popular musician but now a strict business man.
Everything changes when a boy she's never seen before shows up at her bedroom window, demanding to stay there. With a restricting father, a pesky little sister, and the fact that the guy himself is hiding a secret, something is bound to go wrong.
But Cheryl soon learns that heroes don't always come in capes, but can have simple dreams that inspire others. She also finds out through episodes of learning to break rules and possessing their own dark lives that maybe they aren't so different from each other after all.
