To whoever is reading this, hi. My name is Zoie, and this is my story. Now I won't say if everything in this story is true, for my own personal experiences and privacy. But, this book is based on struggle with mental health, trauma, friendship, and discovering my sexuality. This was extremely difficult for me to write because it's hard for me to open up and be vulnerable. This story is focused throughout grades 5-9, and the major moments in those 4 years. For privacy purposes, I have changed all names other than mine. Thank you so much to everyone who is reading this, I appreciate you so much.
