Storyboard: Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens

Storyboard is my new feature where I mash up photos that remind me of a certain book. Unlike real storyboards, there won't be a chronology of some sort to these images because I'm not that awesome lol. Hmm, to best describe this feature, think Pinterest? ;D

Faking Normal is a bittersweet story of two equally-damaged teens who find solace in one another. Alexi and Bodee are such distinct characters that even though I read this book two weeks ago, I can still remember all the feels that it gave me. If you've read the book, you'll know that I storyboard-ed one of Alexi's exchanges with her Captain Lyric because when I saw these lines, I knew I just had to use them for this feature.

Particulars: No, Alexi and Bodee don't go driving to far places; they only manage to escape into each other. But there is, in fact, a pretty tree house, afternoons spent in the porch, a ton of music, vandalism on a school desk, and baseball (It was baseball, right? I'm not a sporty person so I tend to skip over that kind of detail >_<) players.

What do you guys think? It's still not as pretty as Tumblr edits that I drool over on a daily basis, but I've got an idea for my next storyboard so hopefully that'll be better. Oh, and if you haven't read Faking Normal, well, why haven't you?!
