The story being told through his eyes, the reader sees how isolation and pain slowly mend Kyle’s soul, turn it to seeking inner beauty and create Adrian – a guy who descriminates between shallowness and true kindness.
Kyle Kingsbury seems to have everything and anything you would want. I lost all my respect for Lindy, fawning all over Kyle; she lost her backbone. He values looks and money over everything. Yeah, go ahead so I can talk about the 2 girls.
