One afternoon, as Wen is out in the front yard catching grasshoppers, a stranger pulls into the driveway without warning. Wen has never seen a man Leonard’s size before, but he’s charming, young, and easy to like, so she falls for him right away. Until Leonard suddenly apologizes and tells Wen, “None of what is going to happen is your fault,” Leonard and Wen play together. The cabin is then invaded by three more strangers, all of whom are carrying menacing objects of unknown origin. Leonard yells as Wen dashes inside to warn her parents: “Let us in, Wen, but your dads won’t want us there. They have to, however. In order to save the world, we require your assistance.”

When he was a child, he had a fun-loving mother who cried all the time, a younger brother who couldn’t talk without fighting, and a father he admired who left when they needed him most.

Unlike the movies she enjoys, Jolene Timber’s life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. She should know, since she’s been imagining her life as a movie since she was a child, and she’s an aspiring director. No amount of mental re-editing will bring her the love she craves when her divorced parents are fighting and using her as a pawn.

The boy who thinks forgiveness makes him weak and the girl who thinks love is for fools begin an unlikely friendship when they are forced to spend every other weekend in the same apartment building. Their once-dreaded and eventually-enjoyed weekends were transformed into some of their fondest memories. As their lives begin to heal, they realize that falling in love while surrounded by its demise means nothing is ever guaranteed.
