Arabelle's Shadows by Fleur Gaskin
Everything in Arabelle's life is coming together. She has confidence, great friends, she's even dating Naak, a wealthy Thai socialite. But there are too many models in Bangkok. Arabelle’s broke, she can’t find an agent in New York, and Naak isn’t as wonderful as he first appears. Slowly the Shadows creep back into Arabelle’s mind, bringing with them thoughts of hopelessness and despair. The vile Shadows know something Arabelle’s refusing to remember and, if she’s not careful, they’ll use it to destroy her. Based on a true story, Arabelle’s Shadows takes us on a journey through the struggles of growing up, not quite making it as an international model, and attempting to overcome a crushing depression.
"I imagine people think that being depressed is like being sad. It's not. Sadness is a pure, natural emotion. It helps you grieve; it can comfort you. Sadness comes from the memories of something great that's been lost. Depression is not sadness. Depression is hollowness, nothingness. Depression is hell."
"I so desperately want him to save me, but I've been here before many times. I've waited for guys to save me but they never did. No one can save you, you have to save yourself."
