Jonas would probably have more going for him if he had something other than a high school GED and didn’t have to work two jobs. He spends his off days alone or at his friend Nicky’s, drinking beer and occasionally playing board games.

Then Jonas meets Harper, who is trans, owns a used bookstore/hobby shop, and unfortunately shares an apartment with his ex-boyfriend. Despite Jonas’s initial impression, Harper turns out to be kind and patient. As they spend more time together, Jonas’s feelings for Harper evolve into something deeper than friendship, despite life being messy and unexpected.
