DASH & LILY meets FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF in this whirlwind rom-com about two queer teens who spend one life-changing day together lost in New York City.


Abby Akerman believes in the Universe. After all, her Midwest high school marching band is about to perform in the Macy’s Parade in New York City—if that’s not proof that magical things can happen, what is? New York also happens to be the setting of her favorite romance novel, making it the perfect place for Abby to finally tell her best friend Kat that she’s in love with her (and, um, gay). She’s carefully annotated a copy of the book for Kat, and she’s counting on the Universe to provide an Epic Scene worthy of her own rom-com.

Leo Brewer, on the other hand, just wants to get through this trip without falling apart. He doesn’t believe the Universe is magical at all, mostly because he’s about to be outed to his very Southern extended family on national TV as the trans boy he really is. He’s not excited for the parade, and he’s even less excited for an entire day of sightseeing with his band.

But the Universe has other ideas. When fate throws Abby and Leo together on the wrong subway train, they quickly find themselves extremely lost in the middle of Manhattan. So when Leo accidentally causes Abby to lose her Epic Gift for Kat, they come up with a new mission: find a souvenir from every location mentioned in the book for Abby to give Kat instead. But as Leo and Abby traverse the city, from Chinatown to holiday markets to the top of the Empire State Building, their initial expectations for the trip—and of each other—start to shift. And if they let it, this just might be the day that changes everything, for both of them.
