We all have two lives. The second one begins when we realise we only have one.
— Kong Fuzi
▪︎ summary ▪︎
Tara Somerhaden receives the shock of her life when she gains consciousness as the supporting character of a badly written novel. Her character is boring, and has limited work to do, which includes a few acts of kindness, playing Cupid to the main characters and ultimately ending up dead, which serves as a turning point for the plot.
Dissatisfied by the uselessness of herself, Tara wants to change her destiny and become actually useful to herself. But what can she do; when she is a mere 2-D cardboard Damsel in Distress in a story full of clichés?
