Story of two best friends, whose feelings develop into something "more," at the same time as Oliver begins suffering from a sleep disorder and some resulting actions that drive them apart. Loved premise of story, and Wilmington NC setting for start of book. Once Oliver is hospitalized in NY and Althea joins some vegan punk-rockers in Brooklyn, the story lost some of its reality and immediacy for me. Still a realistic portrayal of a relationship that evolves, in sometimes uncomfortable ways. A good read-alike for Eleanor and Park.
