Even small town living can have big city problems. Ben is a bit bratty, a lot stubborn and as frustrating as all get out. It's easy not to empathize with his behavior, but I get it. In a short period of time Ben lost his mother, his father is slipping away and as his is breaking on the verge of losing everything he holds dear. Visually, it's easy to see why he's falling apart. Although emotions are a complication, he doesn't deal well with, there are instances where he can almost be empathetic. That's what I adored about Anna, she brought out a side of him that was well hidden but needed to see the light. The Sunnydale Days series is shaping up to be a wonderful introduction to Constance Phillips for me.
