Afraid is an often paralyzing fear in which you pent up everything in nice little packages, but what happens when all of the inhibitions you once have are blurred with the haze of new excitement and the buzz of alcohol. For Autumn, a simple man manages to ensnare her at just the right time, captivating her with eyes that should be outlawed and smirks that are soon to turn her world upside down. This is her journey of the beginnings of the rest of her life and how one stupid boy inflated her in ways she could never fathom. This is the story of how Autumn met Harry and how this little leaf boy with poetic words and a looming past transformed the innocent Autumn petrified of the ideas of love into something completely new. She'll face cancer scares, life threatening danger, and the devastation jealously leaves behind all for a boy who sees more to her than her broken past and quiet smiles.
