From emerging novelist Emily Kendy comes a darkly funny tale set in the underground music scene of Vancouver. Rebecca is a journalism school drop-out seeking to establish her legitimacy as a freelance writer so that she can stop lying to her mother about what she’s (not) doing with her life. Once she meets Ezra, the editor of an indie-magazine, her escapades reach tragic-comedic proportions as she struggles to balance her new-found obsessive love, drug-use and career goals while working at a local bookstore.
Between her best friend Simon’s bad life choices and her rocky relationship with her father and his new family, Rebecca is forced to grow up and learn that in order to climb mountains; she must first crawl out of the gutter.
