Translator: Gabriela Kozuharova
Editor: Vili Vulkanova
Proofreader: Ina Todorova
Cover Design: Kontur Creative
About the book: Logan Francis Silverstone was my complete opposite. I danced and he sat meekly. He was silent while I kept talking. It was hard for him to smile, and I couldn’t help but frown.
The night I truly saw the darkness in his soul, I couldn’t look away.
We were both hurt together and somehow whole. We weren’t meant for each other and yet we felt attracted. We were stars burning the heavens, chasing dreams, yearning for a better tomorrow.
Until one day I lost it. He ruined everything with one rash decision—a decision that changed us forever.
There was a boy and I loved him.
And for a few breaths, for a few sighs, for a few moments, I thought he loved me too.
