On a bitter-cold day in the December of his junior year at Harvard, Sam Masur exits a subway car and sees, amid the hordes of people waiting on the platform, Sadie Green. When he calls for her, she pretends she hasn't heard him, but then, she turns, and a game begins: a legendary collaboration that will launch them to stardom. These friends, intimates since childhood, and before even graduating college, have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo. Sam and Sadie are brilliant, successful, the world is theirs, but these qualities won't protect them from their own creative ambitions or the betrayals of their hearts. Spanning 30 years from Cambridge to Venice Beach, this is a story of failure, redemption, and above all, our need to love and be loved. Yes, it is a love story, but it is not one you have read before.
