August 21st 2017. The first Total Solar Eclipse in the US for 35 years. And at a time when night is day and day is night, anyone’s life can be turned upside down. Even if you’re Nat Dobbs.
Nat’s the bullied kid. The kid with the stammer and skinny limbs. The kid who weighs 125 pounds dripping wet and never quite looks you in the eye. Maybe if he did, he’d finally make a friend. The last time he tried to fit in he ended up with this pants around his ankles…on state TV.
But Milo Quincy doesn’t see Nat the way the others do, the way his father Gunther does. Sure, he may be a 65 year old recluse who punched Nat in the face, he may even be as dangerous as the rest of the town says he is. But he’s listening – and for Nat, that’s enough for now When the multi colored and multi coveted Celeste Woodston gets thrown onto their path, Nat and Quincy find themselves on a road trip – across four states – in a ’67 Mustang to
witness the eclipse from the optimum point – The Path of Totality.
And maybe in this moment of ultimate darkness, the unlikely friends will finally see the world more clearly – or at least how they’d like it to be.
