Blurb
It happened in stages.
My father left.
My twin sister died of an incurable autoimmune disease.
My mother started breaking down.
Then I was diagnosed with the very thing that took my other
half from me.
That was when I realized Mama’s eyes turned gold when she
cried.
So I moved in with my father and his new family—new wife,
new son, new stepbrother.
Kaiden Monroe made me feel normal.
Hated. Cared for. Loathed. And … loved.
Somewhere along the way, I’d found solace in the boy with
dark eyes.
But everything happens in stages.
And nothing good ever lasts.

Excerpt
PROLOGUE
Mama’s eyes are
golden when she cries. Not like mine, which are a murky shade of dirty pool
water—not fully green or brown, but a mixture of the two. Though when I was
just shy of ten years old and saying goodbye to my sister, Mama told me that my
glassy gaze was speckled with emeralds just like Daddy’s.
But Daddy wasn’t at
Lo’s funeral. Not when the pastor spoke the eulogy to the half-empty church, or
when the slow toll of cars paced the streets to the cemetery, or even when they
lowered the kid-sized white coffin into the ground. Mama and I watched every
step of the way. Her eyes trained on the half of her heart sinking into the
dark soil, never to be seen again, while mine stared off into the distance
waiting for Daddy’s familiar face to appear.
Looking back now, Lo
had suspected the end of our parent’s marriage long before Daddy packed his
things and left. She always knew it’d end that way.
I wondered what else
she knew.
Mama wipes a stray
tear from her eye, hoping I won’t notice how they glisten in the fluorescent
lighting of the drab white room. I want to tell her I’m all right, that
everything will be fine. But the weak attempts of comfort would roll off her
tense shoulders in disbelief.
When Lo was
diagnosed with lupus it was too late to save her. The disease had eaten away at
every piece of her—body, skin, and organs. Nobody knew what would happen if
it’d gone untreated for too long. No matter how hard Mama tried controlling the
disease, it couldn’t be fought.
Logan died in her
sleep.
