The Stars and Stripes Between Us
When progressive, bisexual MIT junior Nathan Campbell meets Marina Salinas on the hockey rink, he’s immediately smitten. She’s gorgeous, smart, funny, competitive. There’s only one problem.
She’s a Republican.
Unable to resist each other, Nate and Marina begin to date in secret, sneaking around Boston to explore what they both know is a really bad idea.
But beyond the bubble of their growing affection, tensions on campus are rising. When Nate’s roommate tries to get Marina’s friend expelled for hate-speech, they’ll both be forced to pick sides.
Can their spark survive the storms of political division?
Hard-hitting, fearless, and maybe a little pretentious, this poetry collection was created to deal with the chaotic noise of our modern world, covering everything from social media to politics to being an artist in 2020.
