He has not been back to there since he was a child, but the scars from the bullying he received by other back then are still inside him.

Pen had a major crush on Richard as a child, they just so happen to go to school together. Now, Pen's cousin is directing Richard's movie and they are all back in town.
While I enjoyed the plot as a whole, I still had issues with a few things. Richard has a tendency to jump in and out of his character on and of set of his movie, there were times that it was difficult or confusing to tell who was talking. It also came across as the characters were very "wishy washy" on their emotions. Neither of the MCs could make up their minds on what they wanted, it was rather frustrating! And could Richard martyrize himself any more?! He blamed everything that could possibly happen on his past, he tormented himself more than the actual events.
I also felt like we were missing an actual climax.
He's So Shy

Based on the synopsis, I would have purchased this book, and I would have left exactly the same review. I don't know that it's one I will pick up again in the future, only time will tell.
