How do I start? Oh. Yeah. There was a time. Don’t all wonderful fairy tales begin in this manner? Maximo and I were also unquestionably out of a fairy tale.

August, a pessimistic 23-year-old, believes that going to New York City will demonstrate her point that there is no such thing as magic or romantic movies and that living alone is the only sensible course of action.

There is also little chance that her daily subway ride will be anything other than a tedious slog through fatigue and electrical outages.

Then, on the train, there’s this stunning girl. Jane. Amazing, endearing, enigmatic, and difficult Jane. When August needed someone to save the day the most, it was Jane, with her rugged edges, swoopy hair, and sweet smile.
