READ AND VOTE FOR IT ON WATTPAD

So guys, "Keeping Things Whole" has kind of been dead for awhile. I don't know what to do with it and I'm not passionate about it any more. But I have a good feeling about this new draft: Shiloh and Mel (not sure if that will still be her name) are in it, it's just a different plot. So I apologize for that, but I'm happy with how this is turning out so far.

---

When Shiloh Tucker was born, his life expectancy was that of any other child, until he was diagnosed with a congenial heart defect as an infant. But after seventeen years of being told he would die, Shiloh Tucker is very much alive, with one little catch: after his heart failed him in infancy, his brain lost too much oxygen in the occipital lobe. So in short, he's certainly kicking, but he has been legally blind since his fourth week of life.
Compromise. Thatís what lifeís about, isnít it?
Shiloh doesn't see it that way- he doesn't like it one bit. But his lack of sight certainly never held him back from a good fistfight, and three expulsions and a broken nose later, Shiloh Tucker is being sent to live with his estranged father's relatives in Nantucket, Massachusetts, where he just might find that there's more to sight than simply seeing.

This is so abominably amazing I don't even know what to say, except keep up the phenomenal work and try to avoid using very so much at the beginning: D

Before today I wouldn't have believed that I could cry over characters I've been exposed to for just thirteen pages.
You are an amazing writer, really.
... and I can barely remember a handful of other times I cried when reading.

This is an amazing storyline! I love Shiloh's personality, and his story (And such a unique name!) and I can't wait to read the rest of the story :)

You write so beautifully. <3 I definitely like the sound of this book, even though this is just the beginning. I love the plot, too, and I guess it's okay that I don't know the previous plot....

This is so beautifully written- the characters are fantastic, they're so real.
The way you write just... I can't even explain it. It makes my heart feel good.
It makes me happy to know there are people like you that exist in my lifetime.

Love it so far, and the lessons that could be learned with it. :thumbsup:

Picking a couple of phsycial ailments that aren't seen too often really caught my attention. Yes, cancer is viscious and can destroy a life, but sometimes people live even when their illnesses suggest they should have been dead long ago, too.

Very interested to see how you'll play out Shiloh being legally blind. My dad has been since birth for reasons different than Shiloh, so I'm excited to see another's perspective with the obstacle.

I love it so far! I found Lilah's character very interesting, and I'd love to see a picture of her.

You're a huge writing inspiration to me. It's nice to see what you're working on now! :D

Love it! I'll admit when I first read that you were changing it I was upset because I'd grown quite attached to the "Keeping Things Whole" but this is great! Will all of the old characters be in this series with the exception of Shiloh's father?
