It is shocking to me how difficult it is to write a blurb. I decided to do a little research beforehand and I found that everyone has an opinion on what a blurb should read like.
Most people said that a blurb should be written in third person. The problem that I have with this is, I don’t really like third person. I like first person. My story is also written in first person. So…I decided that I would just do it my way, that’s a perk of self publishing :).
In the end, I hope everyone likes it…
Meet Ali and Drew…
Sometimes I think to myself, “How did I get here?” Then the pain hits and I remember…it’s because she’s gone. I now live in a new town, go to a new school, and I’m supposed to be moving on with my new life. Only, I no longer know who I am anymore. Dancing is all I have left and every day I feel completely alone. Silence has become the theme song to my life. She said to find some joy and light, but I don’t know how. Mostly, I feel surrounded in darkness…that is until I meet him.
I have only one goal, in 298 days I’m going to drive away from this small beach town and never return. People are always watching me closely, too close, and I’m tired of wearing a mask. I need to be free. Swimming is my ticket out of here and I remind myself daily to fly under the radar, stick to my routine, and under no circumstances let anything distract me. I’m not as perfect as they think, most days I am drowning in guilt. I’m not sure I will ever be able to escape the feelings of shame, worthlessness, and just being unwanted…that is until I meet her.
