About the book:  

Meet Milan, a young supermodel with a disability from New York’s Upper East Side, who falls deeply in love as she is coming of age. In this romantic drama, the emotional conflict of a girl’s inner soul is revealed as she deals with a first love, the pain of loss, and the pleasures of stardom, all while coping with a lifelong secret. In the world of Milan, the people are real, the situations are rolling, and the truth is often concealed. Broken is a racy circle of sisterhood, laced with a touch of earthiness, glamour, wealth, and fame.




EXCERPT


“You, too.” I was dreading the thought of going upstairs. It was kind of cool outside—brisk enough for me to feel the chill against my skin, but not cold enough for me to want to run upstairs. I was dressed in a mere T-shirt and jeans. I had five-inch J. Choos on. They were my absolute favorites. I hung onto favorite shoes, favorite watches, favorite scarfs. Gold and white. They used to be my mom’s. I saved a few things from her closet before Daddy packed them up and put them in the second guest bedroom. I stood there, smelling the freshness of the rain, wondering what it would sound like when it dripped upon my skin.

Something in my mind kept making me feel like I should look down the block at the corner. If I closed my eyes, it would only be me and the smell of the rain. However, I was compelled not to escape into my own world. I quickly glanced at the corner to prove to myself there was no point to paying attention to what was in my mind.

My eyes fell upon the yellow crosswalk sign. Without even a breath going by, it happened. Right underneath the crosswalk, I saw Noel, looking as perfect as he’d looked in every fantasy of mine. Was he taller and sort of broad-shouldered? I couldn’t really tell underneath the leather biker jacket. But the smile—the smile that pulled on my heart and made me feel pain for all the time I had been denied seeing it, that smile was unmistakably the same.

I stopped breathing for seconds stacked right on top of each other. Was he truly crossing the street? I ran like my pumps were Cross Trainers. The rain washed over me. It felt like I had hope and proof. The suffering, the tears, the prayers were worth it. My heart was pounding against the walls of my chest. I deserved this? I did.

He was everything I wanted. God, I wanted him so badly to take me away from here.
