Note:© Valerie 'The Girl Who Saw Through Jem'

Summary: 

She was Ellis. He was Jem. She was a good girl. He was a bad boy. She was polite. He was rude. She was kind. He was impulsive. She believed in God. He was an atheist. She played the piano. He smoked. She was in love. But he wasn't. One day they were brought together through their perceptions of hate, they shared a kiss, but before that they shared many arguments, for matters of the heart require time because love can take a decade and last for as long as a moment but it's still worth it.

 Warning: contains a bad boy who for once can actually think in a philosophical manner, is a prankster at heart thus inducing heartfelt laughter and make more than one people fall in love with him. Also, this isn't a happy story so don't think it gets a happy ending. This isn't a love story. It's a story about losing love.

previously called Losing Ellis, mostly because i changed my mind more than a normal white girl changes her clothes while shopping at Forever 21. sorry, that was racist. 

I hope you enjoy. :)

Liam Butler: I am Liam Butler, and I wrote this novel. If that sounds like an AA admission, that's because it sure feels like one. It is traditional for a writer to hate his own work, it is almost a rite of passage to destroy one's own work in a drunken rage for the first time. Perhaps it's the public availab...

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

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...

Joseph Adu: I love the story but the spelling and grammar made me give 4 stars. And also it's too short .I didn't get to know what went on with Jack .I think everyone should read it because it is really interesting and a great time keeper.

mikaylapetrodos: I really enjoyed the story and I hope you publish the next part of the book soon. the plot line was always easy to follow with plenty of plot twist thrown it. I think it would have been better to explain how some characters got involved in the story more instead of them just showing up.

bhodges11: I like the concept of the story, but there were things that I felt could use more detail. I like the back stories created, but was left wanting more from parts of the story. I like the cadence of the author's writing style - it was a very easy, enjoyable read. I felt like it ended on, not a cliff...

A.O. Chika: I loved the storyline. The characters, the settings, and the overall plot was great. I love how it started sweet in the beginning and then the angst set in.
