With their books still packed inside a one-bedroom sublet, the young lovers explore their new location. Confronted with crazed library patrons, intoxicated vagabonds, and mentally unstable neighbors, they quickly learn just how true the slogan is: KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD. Safety becomes an issue. Michael hatches a plan that takes them to an unlikely spot for a chance at making dreams come true. What he doesn't anticipate is a black swan event that ultimately strengthens their love. Resonant characters abound in this work of literary fiction that knows the importance of being irrational.
