It’s a matter of life or death for Cody. Everyday life that is. Having died 8 times now, it’s become a little bit of an inconvenience. She seems to be surrounded by issues with the biggest one being her knack for dying.
When you have to face problems that no one else has, it can be harder to find people to connect to. “Am I a ghost or an alien? Because I don’t feel human.” Facing these difficulties can sometimes hurt so much that you just want to die. How do you cope with such difficulties? For Cody, it’s putting her headphones in, playing a good video game, and spending a lot of time trying to track the lights in the sky. Like dying, UFO sightings seem to be another all too normal occurrence for Cody.
From family issues and bad romances to paranormal encounters. The experiences may all have one thing in common. This is a coming of age story for adults that still haven’t figured themselves out. Through learning how to cope with very big problems; Cody learns valuable lessons with every death that she experiences. Leaving her to ask the classic questions “What’s my purpose in life?” “Who am I?” more critically.
I created this story as a means for expressing grief, coping and learning to love oneself.
