Differentiating between reality and fantasy is a constant battle for Alex.

Thus far things seem to be going for her, until she crosses paths with Miles.

Wasn’t he just part of her imagination?

Soon enough, Alex has new friends, is going to parties and giving her heart away—proper teenage things.
