Blurb

Seventeen year old Johnson Hawkins was always a nobody. He never fit in with classmates, his family, or people in general. When he sees a peer from school go through her own challenge, he understands why he feels the way he does and how he can fix it. Along the way he comes of age himself and realizes it's never too late to change.

Chapter 1

You may think I'm some kind of freak.

I have the lowest voice in all of Indiana. I pride myself in having an obsession with Ludwig Van Beethoven.

My hair was unkempt. I hadn't cut it in six months, like Beethoven himself.

And somehow, after a terrible day of finals, on impulse, I dyed it a dark, night blue.

The box my friend gave me said it was cerulean.

Nice try, Zwigy.

So now, my friend, I have a story to tell you. About how I ended up in the huge mess called Parkview Behavioral Health Hospital.

And also about how I made the best of it.

My name is Johnson. I was named after my father, John. Like some kind of viking. Nobody lets me live that down.

And I, the night blue, tired, and conceited Johnson Hawkins was very, very depressed before I walked into that building.

I was lonely and scared shitless. Every day before that was a nightmare, precisely.

This is the story of how I realized it didn't have to be.

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

sanbyra: This story is very well written and flows beautifully. I became engrossed in the romance element as well as the impending war. The action scenes are also depicted very well. I can't wait to read what happens next!

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

I was constantly wanting to read more, every chapter left me on a cliff hanger tha...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.

serginemuzac: This book had me dieing😂😂😂 It was super lit and I was reading it for the whole day. Its really interesting and I couldnt put my phone down until I finished all 22 chapters! Even though the grammer was a bit off (I actually enjoyed it, it made everything funnier) I really liked it.

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...
