This could easily be interpreted as a "breakup" or a "depression" mix. But, those are only stages in the overall story, so I'll stick with "narrative" as a category.

The overall history that should be conveyed goes something like this:

girl falls in love.
girl is totally devastated by betrayal, lies, and "brokenness".
girl has to reassess her own ability to interpret truth in the world and whether she can trust her own judgement.
girl wallows.
girl distracts herself with very fun but relatively risky behavior.
girl goes on boybreak, roadtrips alone, spends a lot of time crying on a beach.
girl shores herself up against her own fears (pun intended)

(note: the cover art is a photo I took from outside my tent at San Elijo State Beach on aforementioned roadtrip.)

good mix, good cover. i especially like this bit: "spends a lot of time crying on a beach".

This is excellent and, I would bet, very cathartic.
