June is a typical, if angst-y, teenager. She loves her friends and her hobbies. And she even likes school. One thing that she is not terribly fond of...her looks. One night, June forgets all about how she looks when she bumps into Micha at a local event. Micha is tall, attractive and very friendly. And to June’s surprise, he spends a lot of the evening talking to HER!
While affable and fun, Micha is also nervous and shy around girls. He is pretty new at all of this kind of socialization, too, mostly because Micha is trans, and is kinda new at being Micha. But when he crashes into June at the open-mic night, he falls pretty hard for her.
The two teens happily carry their newfound friendship to the next level (Snapchat, of course), and they even make plans to meet up the following week. At least that is the plan until, well, COVID. The pandemic serves as a backdrop to even more teenage trauma, the kind that is not fixed by a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Will truths come out? Will June and Micha figure it out? And really, will they, or anyone, again ever be able to go out?
A touching story about an infatuation in difficult circumstances.
