My life used to be close to perfect, but it all fell apart the day my parents died. Now, everything is different. Except for me.
I'm haunted by the last words I said to my mother and to make up for it, I try to remain the happy, good girl she wanted me to be, even though I'm not sure I want to be that girl anymore.
But when I decide to go to Benton's party, everything changes.
I know Benton from high school and know he gets into a lot of trouble, so for the most part, I've kept my distance from him. But when I confess to him that I wish I could change my life, it somehow leads to him giving me my first kiss.
While the kiss is magical, later I feel guilty about it.
I wish I could change, but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to.
I live a double life. One where I'm Benton, the high school rebel, and one where I'm Benton, the lead singer in a famous rock band.
Over the last year, my image has gone downhill and my manager and publicist want to change that. Part of changing that requires me to date a girl that'll help improve my image.
That's where Zhara comes in.
I kissed her once at a party, not because I was playing a part, but because I wanted to. It was an amazing kiss and it scared me. I'm not used to feeling things like this, feeling much of anything really. Part of me wants to forget about the kiss, but that's going to be hard to do after I ask Zhara to pretend to be my girlfriend while my band goes on tour.
That is, if she'll agree to do it.
