17 year old Nora O'Donnell isn't your typical teenager.  Ever since her parent's brutal divorce when she was thirteen, Nora's life has never been the same.  She feels completely traumatized and isolated, living with a mother who is never home because of her job at the Florida state hospital.  Even when she's around her popular friends and charismatic boyfriend, Asher, Nora still feels alone and out of place.  Then she meets Daniel.  Daniel Gonzalez, the sexy new outsider of Daytona Beach High.  Finding herself attracted to his bad boy image, the two start to talk and become even closer when they work on a science project together in Chemistry class.  But like Nora, Daniel has some secrets of his own.  Both go from friends to lovers to partners in crime in just a few months.  And once they find the one thing that they love more than each other, there's no going back.   *Warning: This book deals with serious issues such as self harm, depression, and drug abuse.

You wrote this chapter as if you've undergone a quite similar situation like this. If you haven't, then hats off to your really imaginative way of telling your story born only in your mind. :)

Beginning with en medias res always takes me away. I'm trying to perfect that style but just can't! The mood is set-up perfectly, I literally feel the scene. Your descriptions are really good, appropriate, exact. Very few writers nail that kind of thing. So great job. :)

I can associate to her in so many ways. My parents have fought a lot - and have now split up, but thankfully they've never been violent. I feel very badly for the MC. The dad's lack of emotion is pretty creepy.

I enjoyed... no that's not the word... appreciated... yeah that's better, the fight scene between the mother and father had a real violent energy to it and a very dark grounding to the story.

When I see the tag "Teen-Fiction" a warning flag always goes up, but I was pleasantly surprised, yeah you hit some over used tropes but it looks like this is going to be something different and tackling some pretty heavy topic matter.
