"When I woke up that morning in the hospital, it felt like I had been submerged in water. My friends' voices sounded so distant, and the night before came down on me like a colossal wave, suffocating my inner sanctum-- my mind. Everything seemed so unrealistic, and I fell numb. My vision blurred out all of the details, so I hadn't even a clue where I was. Had I died?"

Delilah, a new freshman to Granite Ridge High School, is lost when she discovers that she's going to have a rather difficult time making friends at her new school. However, while this leaves her lonely during the entire day for some time, it is definitely not the biggest worry on her plate. To protect herself, she wears a smile of a mask to disguise her heart.
