Chastity is 17 year’s old, bright, overweight and an outcast in her high school. Her best friend Kevin is gay and like her is an outcast but at least they have each other and appreciate each other not for what others see but for who they are as people. Then there is Chastity’s sister Hope who wants to change her last name because she doesn’t want people to connect them and one of Chastity’s childhood friends, Lauren, one of “The Princesses” won’t even step in to stop the verbal abuse Chastity suffers everyday at school. It is that constant verbal abuse and lack of support that has Chastity writing what most would consider as a suicide note. Just writing the note makes Chastity feel better but not enough to want to stay at school.

Jullian is the school’s class president, handsome and a friend from when they were little children but even his friendship doesn’t make Chastity feel comfortable at school so she leaves the building and finds herself at an old abandoned house where she goes inside to get out of the rain and wait out the school day. Little does she know that going into that house will change her life forever. Inside the house is Xavier, a boy who used to live there and is hiding out from an abusive foster father until he is old enough to be considered an adult.

Xavier writes poetry on the walls of the house, is mysterious and since he does not go to Chastity’s high school has no preconceived notions about her. They strike up a friendship that evolves into so much more. Chastity and Xavier begin to spend a great deal of time together. While they get to know each other they share their deepest feelings and form a relationship different from any relationship Chastity has ever experienced before. Chastity begins to grow confident, happy, and views herself the way Xavier sees her.

What Chastity can’t see is how her changing is effecting everyone around her, from her sister, her parents, Lauren, Kevin and most especially Jullian. Her evolution both physical and emotional has a rippling effect that causes many waves in her life, some positive, some not so positive but all that make her who she is meant to be.

Sharpie Messages is a story that has so much going on that you will be able to see yourself in one of the characters and therefore you will quickly find yourself immersed in the story. You will fall in love with the characters in this book and be pulling for them to overcome what obstacles that fall in their path and you just want some of them to wake up to the world around them so that they can move forward with their lives. This is Melissa Wolff’s first book and an intriguing introduction to a new author. There is some resolution to the story but I can’t wait to read the sequel “Fated” to see how it really all turns out. ( )
