When I first began to write this novel, I could never change my dream cast for the two main characters. I remember wanting no one else on the cover, but that will (sadly) change if I ever publish. Here we go!
Merick Balin – Booboo Stewart.
Merick is supposed to have been a bad boy in high school, but changes his ways after letting Christ into his life. His friendship with Ebony is very important to him, a treasure he never takes for granted.
He has secretly loved Ebony, but would push it away, because all he wants is for her to be happy and safe. And he does not want their friendship to be turned to dust even though they are well passed the “seven year” mark.
Ebony Zaveri – Sasha Pieterse
Ebony is mature, outgoing, cautious and sometimes a bit childish, but that is what makes her character lovable. I do not elaborate on the topic much, but when Merick was going through his stage of rebellion, Ebony stood by his side to pull him away from the dark side.
She had once seen Merick as more than a friend, but like Merick, she did not want to lose their friendship.
Pictures of You - Christian Contemporary "Remind us all of what we used to be . . ." Ebony Zaveri met Merick when she had moved to Princeton, New Jersey. He liked to walk on the wild side, but she knew there was more to him than he was letting on. Growing up with him made life a roller coaster. Merick brought out Ebony's fun side. Raised in a Christian home, she would share her beliefs with Merick, and he would listen. Merick Balin has one goal in life: Prove to his parents that he can be the man they raised. Not only did he accept Christ into his life, but also he was no longer the trouble-making teenager he once was. The only friend he was ever allowed was Ebony Zaveri, and even she was not allowed to be around him. Merick had known Ebony since middle school. She is his best friend, and the only one who had not gone running when everyone else did. Can the two keep their friendship intact when troubles come their way? Will Merick and Ebony look to God for a solution?
