Sam - 18 years old - College Freshman - The Girl - Closed

After her parent’s rough divorce, her mom remarried and she gained a stepbrother, Patrick, whom she has grown to love and care for deeply.  During her early years in high school, she obtained a bad reputation due to her habits of partying and promiscuity. However, now that it’s her senior year of high school, she is focusing on her plans for the future, which she hopes include acceptance into Penn State – University Park Campus.  Part of reaching the goal of rebuilding herself includes fostering an introverted freshman, Charlie.  With the help of Patrick, she is determined to allow Charlie to break out of his shell and teach him that in her, he always has a friend who truly loves him. Now that she’s working on becoming established in college, she’s focusing on the more important things in life like academics, family, and friends. She may even have a future with Charlie.

Charlie - 16 years old - Sophmore - Straight - The Wallflower - Closed

Charlie has always been an outsider.  After the tragic suicide of his best and only friend the year prior, he was left with no choice but to begin his high school career alone.  Despite his lack of friendships with his peers, he has an incredible bond with his family, including his older brother, Chris, and his older sister, Candace.  Charlie is the boy that would rather observe than participate and would rather spend the night reading a book and writing his own story on his typewriter than being at a school dance.  However, shortly after the start of the school year, he meets two senior stepsiblings, Sam and Patrick, who take him under their wings and show him that everyone in their own way is a bit of a wallflower. Now that he’s survived his freshman year, Patrick and Sam are still keeping an eye on him, their friendship still growing strong. Charlie might even have a chance with Sam.
