Review: Althea and Oliver have been best friends since they were six. Oliver has a serious sleep disorder where he falls asleep and won’t wake up for days or even weeks. But as they get ready for their senior year, Oliver and Althea have a serious falling out over her relationship with another guy. When Oliver decides to enter a sleep disorder program in New York City, Althea takes off to find him and make amends. Despite a lot of underage drinking and drug use along with some rough language, this story casts a searching light on identity, illness, love, and why bad decisions can sometimes feel so good.
