Hi! My name is Madeline Whittier but everyone calls me Maddy.
I am Carla.
Madeline Whittier is an 18 year old with a disease called SCID, and is the Protagonist. Pauline Whittier is Madeline's mother who is very protective of Madeline. The nurse to the right is Madeline's personal nurse who tends to Maddy while Pauline is at work. Last but certainly not least: Oliver. Known as Olly, he is the grunge, different love interest of Maddy.
Madeline is home schooled and cannot leave her house due to her disease, SCID, which means she is highly susceptible to any disease or infections. Often she spends all day in her room doing her work or getting close with her nurse until her mom comes home.
A new family moves in next door and Maddy scouts out what is going on as they settle in. There is a boy, seemingly around her age, that catches her attention. He seems different: with his dark clothes and brooding nature.
Eventually the boy spotted Maddy and started talking to her through the window and later they began messaging. Maddy learned that the boys name was Oliver, or Olly, and they grew close through their screens over the next few months.
Carla begins to catch on to what Maddy is doing, and calmly approaches her about it. After talking about how Maddy feels and what she is doing, Carla agrees to keep it a secret.
