In Gabrielle Zevin’s devastating Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, two friends share a creative partnership and a complicated love, deeper than romance, over the course of 30 years. Sam and Sadie become friends as children, bonding over a mutual love of video games before a youthful deception led to a rift. As adults, they reconcile and reconnect over their continued affinity for gaming, leading them to create a video game of their own that will catapult them to fame and fortune, but also change the course of their lives forever. Zevin’s dazzling prose yields an absorbing narrative that asks timeless questions about connection and love. —Cady Lang
