Burn Brightly is the story of Andy Shaw, a 15-year-old who is allergic to the sun. From his second-story room, Andy watches the suburban street outside. It’s through that window that he falls in love with the 40-year-old woman who jogs by his house each day. He’s watched her for months. And today is the day Andy will profess his love, somehow — even if it means putting himself directly in harm’s way.
