A HEAVY DOSE OF ALLISON TANDY

by

Jeff Bishop

October 5, 2021

The summer after senior year should have been a time for Cam to party and hang out with his friends. It should also have been a time for him to win back the love of his life, Allison Tandy, who'd dumped him so brutally the year before.

But it quickly becomes clear that this summer is going to be worse than a failure for Cam. It's going to be a tragedy.

Ally is left comatose after a terrible car accident on her way home from college. Then Cam tears his ACL, followed by an operation that leaves him in agony. Now Cam will be spending his time on the couch, ruminating over the fact that his ex may not survive.

But when, after taking his medication, Cam starts seeing Ally everywhere--yes, comatose Ally--he starts to think two things: 1. He might be headed for a mental breakdown and 2. This summer might just be interesting after all.

Laurel Cates is a people-watcher. She's determined to get through college without stepping on any toes or causing a scene, and so far, it's going pretty well. But when Laurel uncovers a scandal involving the head coach of Garland University's beloved football team, she knows she has to do the right thing. Even if her classmates don't believe her. Even if her boss tries to fire her from the side job she desperately needs. Even if the heart-of-gold quarterback, Bodie St. James, seems hell-bent on hating her for writing the article that got Coach Vaughn put under criminal investigation (a feat which proves difficult when Laurel and Bodie wind up in the same group for a class project in BIO 108: Human Sexuality).
