It's called Bad Romance and it's about a crazy bad relationship between a girl in high school and her college boyfriend. It's also about hard family stuff and how best friends are the real love of your life. I'm really excited about it! :)(less)

“And maybe some people are like collages - no matter how broken or useless we felt, we were an essential part of the whole. We mattered.”
Heather Demetrios, I'll Meet You There

“If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?” I opened my mouth to say San Francisco or maybe Madrid—somewhere exotic. But what came out was, “Here. Right here.”
Heather Demetrios, I'll Meet You There

“I don’t really know what it means to move on, but lately, with Sky, I’m starting to feel like I want to because when I look at her, I don’t see you or the war or any of the shit in my head. I just see her, and it’s like suddenly I can breathe again after holding my breath for so long.”
