wander: a modern odyssey [#onceuponnow] #Wa...
Penelope "Poppy" Icarius fell in love at the curious age of 5. Poppy never questioned her love for the lively, freckled boy down the street, not even after he moved away, leaving Poppy alone in their make-believe world.
Now, age 25, Poppy faces a turning point in her high-profile fashion career. Faced with a major career decision, her sister's impending and ridiculously over-the-top wedding, and a slew of hilariously bad dates with New York's most eligible, Poppy must come to terms with the realities of the life she's living and the secrets she's keeping--even from herself.
This modern-day retelling of Penelope's story from The Odyssey explores the bittersweet intersection of change and certainty, and the challenge of defining yourself in the face of uncertainty, reminding us that becoming ourselves is sometimes the greatest--and most difficult--adventure that we can choose to wander through.
