I can't describe what it's like to want to scream every minute of every day. Two years after a terrifying night of pain destroyed his normal teenage existence, Aaron Downing still clings to the hope that one day, he will be a fully functional human being. But his life remains a constant string of nightmares, flashbacks, and fear. When, in his very first semester of college, he's assigned Spencer Thomas as a partner for his programming project, Aaron decides that maybe "normal" is overrated. If he could just learn to control his fear, that could be enough for him to find his footing again. With his parents' talk of institutionalizing him-of sacrificing him for the sake of his brothers' stability-Aaron becomes desperate to find a way to cope with his psychological damage or even fake normalcy. Can his new shrink control his own demons long enough to treat Aaron, or will he only deepen the damage? Desperate to understand his attraction for Spencer, Aaron holds on to his sanity with both hands as it threatens to spin out of control.

This book started off slow, I liked it! We get to know Aaron and Spencer before they meet. But because of this I expected the rest of the book to be taking it's time to handle things. And that is where it went wrong. Aaron and Spencer consider themselves friends after talking to each other only once...

That's what this book was for me.I'll have to come back and write a full review for it later because I'm not sure I can right now.But it's honestly one of the most beautiful books I've ...
The author has no idea what being deaf is. Yes, I'm going to break the general mold and talk about this. Why? It's an issue that hits too close to home. You can skip it if you want:Spencer is deaf. There are degrees but he's at the top of it because he hears nothing. Zero. And that's some interestin...
I really hated this book and was just irritated by Aaron the entire time. I normally love hurt-comfort, but the hurtee has to actually try to help themselves. Aaron has to be dragged kicking and screaming every tiny step of the way. His father is right, he should have been sent to a mental hospital ...
