Why did I choose Shawn Mendes as the main character

Good qusestion, I chose him because I was looking for someone I could relate to cause from what I read he's kinda quirky and shyish at times and I am sometimes.

Two because I'm a guy and of any romance stuff happens it's better for it to be entirely from his perspective so it doesn't get weird. Three is its easier to know how someone would reach to certain situations you're the close to their age. Four I wanted someone that people might've heard of and I wanted to appeal to the female demographic to be nice
