"I'd always known. From the first time she had looked into my eyes with possibility rather than containment, with a smile, with vulnerability, I'd known that there would be hurt." Our lives are a tale to be told, but how often do we fear the story in its telling? James has fallen through life, plotting a course of least resistance, taking each day as it comes and waiting for that indefinable 'something' to turn up, to give his story meaning.
His journey lacks one vital element - a fellow traveller, a heart's desire - a purpose. Then he meets Lainey. Confident. Beautiful. Captivating. And James rewrites himself to win her heart. Lainey gives James a reason to grow, paints a bright future, promises the happy ending he has sought so keenly.
But when we discover we can live the greatest story of all, are we able to share the pages with someone else? Being Someone is an emotive tale of love, of self-discovery and adventure - a story of the eternal search for happiness in another, without ultimately losing ourselves.
