Best friends Parisa Naficy and Gabriela Gonzales grapple with the complexities of their relationship even while they spend their senior year apart due to a pandemic that disproportionately affects young peopleParisa Naficy, an earnest and privileged Iranian American, struggles to live up to her own impossible standards. Gabriela Gonzales, a cynical Mexican American, has all the confidence Parisa lacks but none of the financial stability. Despite their differences, as soon as they met on the first day of freshman year, they share an "us versus the world" mentality. Whatever the future had in store for them-- the pressure to get good grades, the litany of family dramas, and the heartbreak of unrequited love-- they faced it together. Until a global pandemic forces everyone into lockdown. Suddenly senior year doesn't look anything like they hoped it would, and their friendship is tested during this time of crisis. -- adapted from jacket
