Another Life

Jodie Chapman

Can you ever forget the one that got away?

Another Life tells the story of responsible 22 year-old Nick, who falls in love with passionate Anna (19) over the course of one hot summer. When Anna’s strict religion seeks to divide them, Nick is too scared to fight back and lets her go. Anna is drawn back into Nick’s life years later, and Nick must choose between finding his courage or forgetting about his one that got away.

Woven into this love story is also Nick’s tender, tragic relationship with his impulsive younger brother, Sal. We witness their coming-of-age through Nick’s eyes, as they navigate love, grief, and a tense relationship with their ex-army dad from the mid-1980s to the present day.

This is a story that comments on what it means to love and lose, and ultimately, how to live a courageous life on your own terms.
