    Summary

    Steve is disabled, and lives as a shut-in by choice. As long as he's in his perfectly handicapped-accessible house, he doesn't need any kind of help from anybody.

    Bucky is a college kid with a past he doesn't like to remember, and he's the life of just about any party: Comes early and stays late. Going to class, though? There's really not time for that.

    When Bucky realizes that the lushly landscaped, heated backyard pool abutting his college university's campus is never used, and seems to be attached to an empty house, he starts throwing parties there.

    But … it's Steve's pool. And Steve catches them at it from the beginning.

    He doesn't say anything. He doesn't mind. Watching their antics through a crack in the curtains is the most human contact Steve might ever be likely to have.

    Summary

    Tyler was sad. He was hurt, confused, angry, and scared, too, but most of all, he was sad. He didn't know if it was because he had been stuck in the same town for his entire life or it it was something a bit more serious, but that little uncertainty didn't stop him from applying to colleges all throughout the country and going to the one the furthest away from where he grew up. It wasn't the best choice he had made in his life, but suddenly there's this kid that shows up who dyes his hair a different color almost every month, and maybe, just maybe, he's the cure to Tyler's, well, whatever it is.

    Summary

    Of all the patrons Brendon's ghostly book mobile has, Spencer Smith is his favorite. Spencer, too young and too scared in a city 2,000 miles from home, is the first to find Brendon, to climb into the old Fleetwood and run his hands over the books he hasn't seen since childhood. Even if they had nothing else in common, that would be enough. Brendon just wants to be seen, and Spencer just wants to be heard, and if they were anyone else, they would be a match made in Heaven.

    But Brendon has a job to do, and Spencer has his own demons to wrestle with, and while Spencer is pulling Brendon closer to the land of the living, all Brendon seems to do is drag Spencer further down.
