Callum Littlefield walks a fine line between arrogant overconfidence and self-deprecating insecurity. After being ostracized by his peers and getting thrown out of his New England boarding school, Callum’s parents exile him to his aging grandmother’s Gold Coast estate on Long Island. He is promptly put to work with her smattering of servants, and is forced to interact with his old Macumba-practicing Brazilian nanny.

Though Callum reunites with old friends and tries his hand at the prep school party scene, he soon tires of his duties and escapes back to his family’s empty Manhattan townhouse. There he meets a young girl named Layla, who changes his life in more ways than even he can understand.

In one summer, Callum finds love, adventure, death, and heartbreak, all the while offering us a detailed social commentary on his blue blood, eastern surroundings.

The Catcher in the Rye meets Bright Lights, Big City.
