“He looked right at me as he gave me a half smile. "You're the brightest thing in the room", he said. He lifted his hand from my waist, and slowly, carefully brushed a stray lock of hair from my cheek. "You shine".
"There was that tension between us again, but it wasn't the shimmering, angry kind that had been there before. This felt like the way you get nervous right before something exciting happens - the moment when you're balanced on the top of the roller coaster, the hush before the surprise party, the second after the diving board but before the water, when you can close your eyes and imagine, just for a second that you are flying. The feeling that good things are coming, almost here, any moment now."
Other: there is a scene where the enter a pub with fake id and lots of underage drinking
SummaryAdd a Summary
Emily's best friend has disappeared, leaving behind a to-do list for her to accomplish. The list forces Emily out of her comfort zone, from being shy and awkward to becoming more confident and playful. It's not about being a rebel- it's about trying new things, making new friends, and discovering where the little things can take you. It's about not simple existing as someone's sidekick, it's about living.
