Just Like Butterflies

Living within the boundaries of unrequited love was something that sixteen year old Chantel hated. Adopted from China into what seemingly was the perfect family, Chantel grew up with a scar across her face; a remnant of her past that made her see herself and the world as a terrifyingly ugly place. With the scar; love and everything beautiful was nonexistent. Living within her rebellious cousin’s footsteps, made Chantel sink even further into her own pool of fears, where she slowly realizes that the farthest she could possibly get to a happily ever after at this rate, were her dreams. However, all it took was one summer to change everything.
