"We are running for a fan-based petition, and striving for 5000 fans benchmark, so that I would publish this book by myself. So, the thing here is, I finish the book but none of the publishers in Malaysia wants to publish it because of two things: First, it is written in ENGLISH, second, they are afraid that ENGLISH fiction would not sell in Malaysians market, though we aware that books like Stephenie Meyer's Twilight and Dan Brown's Lost Symbol, Da Vinci Code etc, always made the bestselling. (I know, these are very influential authors, but there is no harm of trying)..."

First, you should know upfront, that this is not a love story. It is a story of boy meets girl. The boy, Arin, grew up listening to many sad pop and indie rock songs from The Beatles, The Smiths and mostly,Death Cab for Cutie. The girl, Zoey, on the other hand, is an all-natural, barefooting-to-everywhere, and goofy type of girl, but they both share one thing in common - Passion.
While feeding his wild side of imaginations with his anti-depressant drugs, Arin met Zoey in a strange meeting on a cliff, a place where an accident took place that snatched away the lives of her multi-millionaire American parents. Under the cloudless sky, this is where all the adventure begins - singing in Cameron tea plantation, tiptoeing in Putrajaya bridge, making fun of a gibbon in Bukit Merah - as they professed that 'Life is short...live it or leave it'.
Twelve songs in one infinite playlist Arin - a dropout, smart but confused and hopelessly romantic, eventually found small but resilient sound of hopes for his Future Plans, with the help from Zoey.
