If You Never Get Lost, You’ll Never Be Found
Twenty-one-year-old Natalia Stolfi is saying good-bye to the past-and turning her life upside down with a trip to the land down under. For the next six months, she'll act like a carefree exchange student, not a girl sinking under the weight of painful memories. Everything is going according to plan until she meets a brooding surfer with hypnotic green eyes and the troubling ability to see straight through her act.
"I pinky-swore my beautiful, brain-dead sister that I'd live enough life for two."
It's so sad because she wanted to do something as a memory for her sister, but she has forgotten how to be herself anymore in the process. She tries to be something she's not, and she's damaged. She also suffers obsessive compulsive disorder, and even though I have no experience in relation to this, it kind of fits the image of what I'd think a person who has OCD. It was worse than what I imagined, though.
"Bran's not perfect. Neither am I. And maybe that's fine. Maybe that's better than fine. We're perfect only for the other."
