Summary: This is the story of a girl, her gay best friend, and the boy in love with both of them.
months after her recurring depression landed her in the hospital, Mira
is starting over as a new student at Saint Francis Prep. She promised
her parents she would at least try to act like a normal, functioning
human this time around, not a girl who sometimes can’t get out of bed
for days on end, who only feels awake when she’s with Sebby.
is the painfully shy art nerd at Saint Francis who’s been in
self-imposed isolation after an incident that ruined his last year of
school. When he sees Sebby for the first time across the school lawn
it’s as if he’s been expecting this blond, lanky boy with a mischievous
glint in his eye.
Sebby, Mira’s gay best friend, is a boy who
seems to carry sunlight around with him like a backlit halo. Even as
life in his foster home starts to take its toll, Sebby and Mira together
craft a world of magic rituals and secret road trips, designed to fix
the broken parts of their lives.
As Jeremy finds himself drawn
into Sebby and Mira’s world, he begins to understand the secrets that
they hide in order to protect themselves, to keep each other safe from
those who don’t understand their quest to live for the impossible.
Why I Want to Read: I like books that have LGBT characters, and the first line of this summary immediately grabbed my attention. Is this boy in love with them both as in friends-love, or love-love? That’s my first question. Besides that, I just think this looks like a really thoughtful, character-driven novel.
