Two struggling teenagers find an unexpected connection just when they need it most.
Sometimes a new perspective is all that is needed to make sense of the world.
KIT: I donât know why I decide not to sit with Annie and Violet at lunch. It feels like no one here gets what Iâm going through. How could they? I donât even understand.
DAVID: In the 622 days Iâve attended Mapleview High, Kit Lowell is the first person to sit at my lunch table. I mean, Iâve never once sat with someone until now. âSo your dad is dead,â I say to Kit, because this is a fact Iâve recently learned about her.
When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates Davidâs blunt honestyâin fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kitâs attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dadâs tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what theyâll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?
