Everyone wears a mask. What we see of people on the surface is so rarely what’s ticking underneath. And, in Cortland Hunt’s case, what he’s hiding might just be more than Ian Tanner is prepared for.
Breaks is the story of two young adults coming to terms with who they were, who they are and who they’ll become.
It’s a love story…but a little broken.

I was always that person whose family FORCED them to go to school dances and be "social", and then ended up finding the one other person I actually knew there and following them around like a weirdo until my mom picked me up . . . Or, failing that when I knew absolutely nobody there (as most of my friends didn't want to go either), I just stood in the corner and stared creepily into space without blinking until everyone was too afraid to speak to me. (Hey, if you are as uncomfortable around people as I am, you do what you have to.)
@kattriella: Awww, you're definitely not alone in that. I was a bit of a wall-hugger at school parties myself, so I guess we can empathise with Cortland in this case. You get the feeling that he's not really a people-person, eh? ^_^
