It's about Miles, a young man who seems to spend his life searching after the mysteries of his childhood.
"Miles's twin brother, Hayden, had been missing for more than ten years, though probably 'missing' wasn't exactly the right word.
'At large'? Was that a better term?"
It's about Lucy, a girl from the Midwest who wishes that she came from a more cosmopolitan background.
"Without thinking, she touched the cash to her face, as if it were a bouquet. 'Thank you,' she whispered. 'Thank you, God.'"
And it's about Ryan, a former college student without a clear sense of who he is in the world.
"'Right,' Ryan said. And then, as the three of them parted for him, as they prepared to fall in behind him, following with their giant tulip cups and their cards and their hopeful, friendly expressions, he made an abrupt feint, a zigzag, pushing himself into the flow of tourists on the sidewalk.
And then he took off running."
And it's about someone whom all three of them know, but perhaps not fully.... I don't want to spoil it, but I want to prepare you for how awesome it is.
This novel is about a modern world where people are not always who they say they are.
