Overeducated and underemployed, Ivy League graduate Agnes Larch spends every day steeped in failure and sleeps every night without dreaming…that is, until the unexpected death of Ian Millbrook, the boy she’s silently loved her whole life. Grieving and forced to confront her long-buried feelings for Ian, Agnes undergoes an arduous physical and spiritual journey to unearth her past and untangle her future. She walks in two worlds, the waking and the dreaming, each world filled with secrets, mysteries, and maybe, if she believes enough, miracles.
I sit with my hands on the wheel for a long time, the key in the ignition. It could be any day in high school. I could be driving to a long, boring day in AP English, AP calculus, AP everything, hoping to catch sight of Ian Millbrook in the parking lot, trying to spot his blond floppy bird’s nest of hair across the auditorium toward the boys’ side of the room
Instead, I am driving to Butler Academy to say goodbye forever. I am driving to see him and not see him. Or rather, to see him, but with the knowledge that he will not see me.
And in that way, this day is already very, very familiar.
