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.

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...
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...
ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...
Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...
