Twenty-year-old Alice Potter leads a pretty average life. She has an okay job, a loyal best friend in Maria, and the affection of her friend, Tyler. She doesn’t expect anything to change, but then James Butler, her high school crush, walks back into her life. James has always had a hold over Alice, and as she finds herself slipping back into the James Butler bubble, her comfortable life begins to turn upside down. But James doesn’t want a relationship, not when he’s leaving town in a couple of months, and while Alice knows that anything between them is short term, she tries to make the most of the time they do have.
As Alice grapples between the notion that it’s better to have loved and lost than not loved at all, she fears that what she feels for James isn’t reciprocated, and when he leaves, she will be left worse off than before.
A story of longing and first love, Linger will take you on an emotional roller coaster from the first hello, to the last goodbye.
