MELODY COOPER- BACK STORY
Melody Cooper is in the Mental Hospital because mainly of Calum committing suicide. But, she said that it was because Calum was her 'only friend'. Not true. Melody had unknowingly liked Calum as more than a friend. Mel is a hopeless romantic, that is why she felt something with Michael so quickly.
((I have actually related Melody to myself quite a bit, I too, am a hopeless romantic. Though someone I've liked has never committed suicide, I put a lot of my feelings into Melody.))
Besides attempting suicide, Melody mentioned in the first chapter that she has a nightmare disorder. When she was younger, she experienced something that was horrible. Her family all died in a fire. She was adopted. She was forced to grow up at a young age of 13, and learn how to take of herself because her adoptive parents were always at work.
CALUM HOOD- BACK STORY + SUICIDE EXPLAINED
Calum Hood was physically, verbally, and sexually abused. He had many things wrong with him. Cal was a wreck. He always felt as if he had no one but his sister, Mali. Calum was abused in all these ways since the very young age of 4 fours years old. When Calum turned 16, he started to smoke cigarettes and do drugs, and when his father found him with a cigarette in his mouth, he took it out and proceeded to burn Cal with it, everywhere. (when I say everywhere, I mean, everywhere.).
Calum committed suicide because he finally came out to his parents that he was, yes, homosexual, and they went ballistic. His father beat him within an inch of his life. So later that night, Calum took his whole entire bottle of anti- depressants. And overdosed. ((i feel v v cruel for writing this, i'm sorry calum ily))
