really liked it

When we were seventeen where were we? Most of us, probably, under the safety of our home with our family. Sent to school by our parents, have great friends, and who knows, maybe have found love at that age as well. Among us is Alyssa, living a safe life with her father until he kicked her out. It's crazy how life turns out, one minute you're inside the comfort zone of what we call home and the next you were just out in the world, all alone; no friends or family to support you, just on your own.

Kicked out of your own home by your own father nonetheless. Thrown in exile with your biological mother you've barely known. No friends. No love. Who knows about love? Everything was lost because of love, because she risked it all for love? She loves you, she loves you not..is a story of being kicked out of your safe world to the dangerous unknown. Haha. What I mean is it's a story about finding your place in the world after being kicked out of your comfort zone, a story of standing after you hit rock bottom.

I love Julie Anne Peter's style of writing here. She puts you in Alyssa shoes. Hence, the tears after finally Alyssa came up to her father before going back to her new life.

"I want you to know that I love you. You're my father and I will always be your daughter." Everyone hopes for a happy ending. I was hoping his father would get over his being an asshole but reality is, this happens to must of us who comes out to their parents. That's why most of us chooses to keep hidden from our families. Homophobia, sucks. But the fear of hatred, and of not being accepted by our family sucks even harder, 100x harder. "Being gay is a choice but homophobia is."
