It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. They graduated from college and are looking for their last one-night stand before they leave for the “real world.” But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Already, this sounds like a typical romance story.
Over 20 years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Each chapter highlights how Dex and Em spend that day facing squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, and laughter and tears. It’s a story of self-discovery that’s written in a clever way through the perspective of two quirky and humorous protagonists.
