Charles and Lily, James and Nan. They meet in Greenwich Village in 1963 when Charles and James are jointly hired to steward the historic Third Presbyterian Church through turbulent times. Their personal differences, however, threaten to tear them apart. Follow these two couples through decades of love and friendship, jealousy and understanding, forgiveness and commitment. Against the backdrop of turbulent changes facing the city and the church's congregation, these four forge improbable paths through their evolving relationships, each struggling with uncertainty, heartbreak, and joy. A poignant meditation on faith and reason, marriage and children, and the ways to find meaning in life.
"A grown-up monster describes in rhyming verse how monsters of all types go to school, and so must this child monster, no matter how glum about the prospect."
When a notoriously difficult class for future entrepreneurs leads to three freshmen developing the next "it" app for dating on college campuses, all hell breaks loose... Type A control freak Sara lives by her color-coordinated Post-it notes. Rich boy Braden wants out from under his billionaire father's thumb. Scholarship student Roberto can't afford for his grades to drop. When the three are forced to work together in one of the university's most difficult classes, tension rises to the breaking point... until, shockingly, the silly dating app they create proves to be the most viable project in class. Late nights of app development, interest from investors and unexpected romance are woven into a true-to-live college drama that explores what it means to really connect online and IRL.
