Ever felt like you were robbed of a proper parent-child relationship? 😔 Our 17-year-old protagonist knows that feeling all too well. His dad was never really a 'dad' to him, always absent and prioritizing friends over family. But when his dad remarries and suddenly becomes a doting father to his new wife's kids, our protagonist can't help but feel bitter and resentful. 💔 He's determined to leave as soon as he turns 18, but his dad's new family isn't making it easy. When they try to force a sibling bond, he's having none of it. 😤 Let's dive into this emotional rollercoaster of a story...
