A. Alicoabout this book: Alexis just wants the freedom to be her own person—a struggle that's hard enough in high school as it is. But her controlling mother has spent Alexis's whole life telling her how to dress, how to speak, and what interests to have, leaving Alexis with little room to find her own identity. Her only freedom is in the journal that her father gives her for her sixteenth birthday, where she can pour her frustrations and dreams out onto the page.
After being brutally assaulted at a party that was supposed to be a good time, Alexis withdraws even further from her life, finding solace only in her trusted journal. She spirals into depression as her mother doubles down on Alexis for spoiling her "image." But when a new hire at her newspaper internship leads to unexpected feelings, Alexis must decide whether she can bring her walls down enough to let in someone who might help her, or if the risk of being hurt again is too great. She struggles to push aside her pain and move on with her life, but gloomy pasts never stay hidden—and the more emotion she lets herself feel, the more the cracks start to show. It's only a matter of time before she can no longer harbor this dark secret alone—the question is whether anyone will stick around to help her carry it.

By exploring themes of repression, voice, therapy, and support, this novel brings fresh light some of life's hardest lesson
