Finn isn't broken...

Finn: I’m not broken. Yes, I lost my mom. Yes, my dad and brother had some issues. But I’m good—athletic, popular, okay in school. My brother is the broken one. The one who thinks it’s me is my best friend’s sister. She’s always looking at me, and because she’s the smartest kid in school—even though she’s a year younger than everyone there—she seems to see me. Truth? She scares me. I know I’m not a good person. I carry darkness that would kill my brother if he knew. But Piper—she might know. She’s just that smart. I hope she never tells anyone what I’m really like.

Piper: Finn Jansen is broken. I don’t know why nobody else sees that. The guy is sinking fast, and not one soul cares. He tells them he’s fine, and all his fans believe him. But then, what do I know? I’m terrible at making friends. I’m too young, too smart, and not very brave. Mostly I watch him and pray for him and hope he’s okay.

But he isn’t okay. He’s going down a path that can only end in disaster. It’s scary what God has planned to rescue Finn’s life and his heart. And the role I get to play? Well, this time God isn’t playing fair. Except maybe it has to be this way. The wall around Finn’s heart and the lies he believes about himself—it will take a miracle to get through. I just hope both of us are strong enough to survive it.
