Development Pitch

This is an emotive, heartfelt, desperate portrayal of a young girl, Abbey, who has gone through absolute tradegy when her boyfriend dies in a sucide pact and she does not. Cole was the only anchor in her lonely, chaotic world and once she loses him she becomes mentally unhinged. She finds out that she is pregnant with his baby and that only makes her more unstable. She resorts to spending everyday at Cole's grave and even walks there at night when the nightmares become too much. The book follows her story as she contemplates sucide,lashes out at her mother and refuses to take care of herself at all. Ty, Coles best friend steps in to help her and even he can't seem to save her. It is only through finally meeting Cole's family that he had been so secretative about and finding out that Cole's mother, Vee, is dying from cancer that she learns some life lessons that help her realise that she must keep going. Once Abbey gives birth and Ty's continues to help her recover from Cole's death and then Vee's once she dies, they begin to grow closer. But then Ty drops a bombshell that he is leaving for university and Abbey has to deal with her emotional reaction to Ty leaving her too. This is a series and the book finishes on a cliff hanger where Abbey walks out of Ty's life ready to make a new start. I believe this will make a great film because of all the drama, the gut wrenching and heart breaking story line which will draw the audience into Abbeys world and share her recovery journey.
