This is a short story set in the 1950s, about an intense young college girl at Harvard/Radcliffe whose heartbreak and a subsequent blind date set the stage for her to discover she may be mentally ill, have magical powers, or both. I wrote it years ago and have never tried to publish it before. I am a pretty tough editor, and re-reading this after many years...I thought it was okay. Now I want to know what Wattpad readers think! It's my first post ever on Wattpad and my first experience with direct reader feedback. Set on the East Coast in the fifties, I apparently researched some interesting historical details about Broadway musicals, early co-ed education, and Harry Truman's secret Chinese coup over FDR. Looking forward to hearing from everyone!

Wow, I'm in love with this. There's something so simple and beautiful about the way this is written, and the message of something being "not quite right" comes across very clearly.

I love it so far. In fact, I was just in "Guys and Dolls" the musical (not on Broadway but still) and the title caught my eye. I think it is great you incorporated a gay person in the 1950's. I'm sure there were some who just couldn't admit it. I'm excited to read more!
