NOVELS

Time Zone 1st prize, MIT Boit Manuscript Prize

Juneau is a mess. From the outside, she has it all together: she is smart, warm, and well-liked. But behind closed doors, she lets all the pent-up emotions flood out. Haiden is her best friend. He’s her rock, but he’s also absolutely off-limits. Caught in the midst of turbulence back home and at school, Juneau struggles to uncover her own identity as the voices around her are so disharmonious. The only thing that helps her drown out the noise is Haiden. There’s just one problem: he’s moving to the other side of the world in three months.
But with a heart full of hope, she wonders if perhaps their love can perservere across every time zone.
Told through a mixture of traditional narrative and social media posts, Time Zone is a story about love in the digital age, mental health, and racial identity.
Coming soon...
