Having grown up the snarky brunette in a house full of chipper redheads, she’s quick to search for traces of herself among these not-quite-strangers.

Robin Benway - Emmy ​& Oliver
“We ​stayed and looked and waited for Oliver to come back, as if our love was a beacon that he could use to light his way home, to crawl up the sides of the earth and back through his front door, his shirt tag still sticking up in the back. After a while, though, after years passed and pictures changed and false tips fell through, it started to feel like the beacon wasn’t for him anymore. It was for those of us left behind, something to cling to when you realized that scary things could happen, that villains didn’t only exist in books, that Oliver might never come home. Until one day, he did.” When Oliver was seven years old, his father kidnapped him in a custody dispute, spiriting him across the country and away from his family and his best friend, Emmy. Ten years later, Oliver is found and returns home, reuniting him with Emmy once again. But is their story still meant to be? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?
