Some days are brighter than others, but Penelope Finnel has been taught she can be invisible behind the colored lenses of her heart-shaped sunglasses.
Her mind is her worst enemy, and simply waking up in the morning is risky. For a kid like her, staying in bed is easier, especially when the day has come to start school in a new town with new kids who don’t understand that the clouds are not the only reason everything is so gloomy.
Dillon Decker is a typical boy from a typical small town who radiates light and happiness. Under the hovering glare from her father, Dillon leads Penelope around on his bicycle’s handlebars, hoping he is the cure to her madness.
But when friend turns to lover, and lover turns to caretaker, how much can either of them tolerate before they’re swallowed whole? A story about moving trucks and rollerblades, candy for smiles, and notes across lawns. First loves and the struggle to keep it sane. The true love way.

Didn't want to put it down
This is a true coming of age story beginning with bubblegum and bicycles, skinned knees and roaming the streets until dark. Young love just entering 8th grade. We follow their lives as they progress, with the regular ups and downs but also with Pen and her constant battle with depression, the daily struggle just to get out of bed and how she is able to overcome it.
If you have any experience with depression in your own life, you will probably see similarities. If not, it's very good at explaining why 'Aunt Jill' does some of the things she does.
