"It's better to burn out than to fade away..." -Kurt Cobain


Wynter Tomson suffers from Lupus SLE, an autoimmune disease that breaks her apart and makes her more fragile than anything. She hates herself and hardly anyone knows of her disease.
Only when a foreign exchange student comes to her school does she start to look at herself in a different light.
But sometimes, too much change leads to dangerous actions. And Wynter tries to change too much, too fast, and in the wrong way.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

In my opinion, this story is a masterpiece! I really enjoyed it and the knowledge you have about the disease and the fact that the story is also very personal to you makes it more meaningful and realistic. Keep up the good work!

Hmmmm...... it's really good. However, here's a few pointers: Maybe slow the pace down a little bit with Zane, it's going too fast to be believable. Work on grammar and punctuation a bit, but it's not that bad. And last of all: CONTINUE IT! It's really good! I want more. :)

This is a great start to a really good sounding story. I'd love to read more.

I love it when people write books that mean something to them because it brings so much meaning to a story so good job!
