LIGHT-YEARS FROM HOLLYWOOD, a YA romance novella, explores the darker side of high school.
What is life like when you don’t seem to fit in anywhere? A deaf boy and a homeless girl forge an unusual friendship, learning that acceptance and ultimately love truly conquers all.
Dylan: High school is supposed to be an adventurous four years of exploring the joys of youth and unlimited learning opportunities, right? What a crock! The gifted program is challenging enough without being the only deaf student on campus. I was content with my under-the-radar, nearly invisible existence until a beautiful, blue-eyed freshman sat next to me in Algebra. I had always preferred my loner status until she forced me to see what else life had to offer.
Nikki: I have kept my embarrassing secret for as long as I can remember. Dylan was the only person I ever shared it with, and to my surprise he never judged me. Instead, he was determined to save me even though unforeseen threats lurked around every corner.
