There once was a boy, and I loved him.Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet, while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and I refused to frown.
The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn’t look away.
We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows.
Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision–a decision that changed us forever.
There once was a boy, and I loved him.
And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too.
Brittainy Cherry has been in love with words since the day she took her first breath. She graduated from Carroll University with a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts and a minor in Creative Writing. She loves to take part in writing screenplays, acting, and dancing–poorly of course. Coffee, chai tea, and wine are three things that she thinks every person should partake in! Brittainy lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her family. When she’s not running a million errands and crafting stories, she’s probably playing with her adorable pets.
If anyone can make you cry before you get into the book, really fear for where the story will take you, it's Brittainy C. Cherry. I finished the Prologue and knew she was going, without a doubt, make me cry.
Even crying, I loved this book.
Alyssa and Logan are best friends for so many reasons. They are opposites and also the same. They are each other's support in good and bad times. That kind of friendship is special. They are special.
But with the highs, come the lows. And their lows get pretty low. This story is about hope. Hope for the better, the best, and hope for the future.
It's such a beautiful story. Meet High and Lo and learn about the fire. You too will burn.
