    Summary

    Professor Rey finds life as an adjunct professor not quite what she expected. There is the satisfaction of teaching using her major and degrees, but the isolation and job insecurity can cause lacerating sadness, insecurity, and poverty.

    One semester, an ex-military student walks in late into to her classroom on the first day of school, and soon she starts to experience a series of emotions while he's her student. Ben Solo is slightly mysterious but also seems to contain artistic promise. Meanwhile, she is plagued by strange and tantalizing dreams portraying a dark fairy tale.

    Can Rey overcome a lack of trust created by her college-aged experiences to form a strong bond in a new relationship? And what of the opaque background of her student, who is at pains to seem helpful, but who also conceals his family life and history.

    Story is set in two time periods, late 90's and late 00's, a time of changes in social and economic life in the U.S.

    Summary

    Six abused dolls, owned by a narcissistic, vicious witch, that have known nothing but a life of enslavement and pain, who still manage to find purpose and meaning in the bonds they have forged with each other.

    Six sheltered boys, cared for by a zany, vivacious confectioner, that happily spend their idyllic days managing a magical soda shop, about to receive their first glimpse of humanity’s dark side.

    Or: A comparison and contrast between two diametrically opposed worlds and worldviews, what happens when said worlds and worldviews collide, and the ways the concept of family is universal.

    We like things to be black or white, tall or short, here or there. We like to consider two sides to every story. Unfortunately, there aren't always two sides. Sometimes there's only one; more often, there are multitudes. Many facets on the stone. Nooks and crannies in abundance. Things are usually not either black or white, but multicolored.
    ― Barry Leiba
