knows that Izzy won't ever fall in love with him the way he's fallen
for her. But somehow he's been let into her crazy, exhilarating world
and become her closest confidante.

high and her lows are too low. And the frenetic energy that makes her
shine is starting to push her into a much darker place.

gets increasingly desperate to stop her from plummeting. He knows he
