RUN AWAY TODAY Persephone Greystone, or Percy to her friends, lives in Green Meadow, Minnesota,a tiny town with a population of around 260. That many people meant everyoneknew your business and reputation. Percy wants no more than to run away toNew York, or LA or somewhere where she can be a something. She wants to befamous, and live it large! Percy feels ready to burst and has found the opportunityof a lifetime, but is facing one minor problem:How will she get there when everyone, even her friends, are holding her back?
“Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, diagnosed when I was six. I always needed my hands moving, holding something, touching, clicking, and irritating the hell out of everyone. Nothing in my hands meant meltdown. OCD meant an even harder life at school, for me and everyone. Especially mum, since Dad went down to get the milk. Must have started talking to the clerk, because it’s taken him nine years so far. Milk must be spoilt by now.” Adelaide Hills has never had the easy life. Her twin sister Miranda seems to have got it all: good looks, smarts, talents and a beautiful body that had boys swooning. And all Adelaide got was zero beauty, too much freakish brains and a tall body that had boys asking her if the weather was okay up there. And, the rancid cherry atop the rotten ice-cream: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to live with. Adelaide is certain that the fairy tales she so desperately wanted to live in where full of junk, when Tobias Flynn moves in next door. So maybe, just maybe, Adelaide may get what she’s always needed: A Fairy-tale.
