    Summary

    The year is 1943 and the Second World War continues to rage on. Mickey is drafted into the army while Ian remains on home soil in Chicago. We follow their story through their letters to each other and a series of flashbacks. As homosexuality is a criminal offense, and considered a mental disorder, they must keep their relationship secret – Mickey addressing his envelopes to Debbie Gallagher and calling Ian ‘Red’ in his letters to avoid suspicion.

    EXTRACT:

    July 13th, 1943

    To my beloved Mickey

    I replay that last weekend we had together, holed up in that cheap motel room, over and over again. I miss everything about you—the sparkle in your eyes, that smile reserved only for me, the way you smell, and your rough hands that caress me in the gentlest of ways. And other things too. You know what I am talking about, and I know I cannot say much, but know in your heart that my body aches for you. To be close, in the most primal of ways. To be welcomed home, safe inside. My heart is beating wildly in my chest at this very moment, just thinking of you in my arms.

    Summary

    Ian navigates life inside the confines of Marceline, a beautiful boarding school in rural America where he had been fed, clothed, and raised since as long as he could remember. Things begin to fall apart when he grows older and starts to question the truths he'd been told -- about himself, his friends, and what their purpose truly is.

    Retelling of Like Real People Do from the perspective of Ian.

    In hopes of saving for his future, Ian Gallagher works nights on kestrel, an iOS app specializing in paid sex services.

This is the story of how Ian breaks every damn rule and falls in love with Mickey Milkovich.
