If there is one thing that Hero Stutz is, is misnamed. Never really amounting to much, a failure at most things, he is trying not to run his family's bookstore into the ground as he attempts to
write something after the success of his first three novels. One day, as the world takes a sharp turn for the worst, Hero does something unimaginable and lives up to his name, rescuing the
stubborn, annoyingly logical minimalist, Matilda, a foreigner who is trapped without hope of escape.

In a world where a city becomes an island and families are torn apart, hope may not spring eternal, but resilience will.
