Summary

A modern romance based on the legend of Tristan and Iseult.

This isn't a story about anything new. It's about the oldest thing in the world. It's about love.

Tristan, a sixteen-year-old chess genius, lives with his Trinidadian aunt in a rapidly changing section of Brooklyn and uses his talent to earn money for his hustling cousin, Marcus. His world is turned upside-down when Izzy, a bright aspiring doctor raised on the Lower East Side, moves to the neighbourhood with her family, the first white family to settle on the block.

A passionate romance springs up between the two, but they're soon swept up in a series of escalating misfortunes: violent conflict between Marcus and Izzy's twin brother; a twisted scheme of romantic deception devised by Izzy's best friend, Brianna; and a secret that tests the bond of family loyalty and forces them to face impossible decisions.


NOTE: There is one occasion where the characters have sex but this isn't described in detail. There are other references commensurate with teenage experiences: underage drinking, tarot cards, the dealing of weed and some language however it all feels rather chaste.

Book of the week

Prior knowledge is not required as a tragic inevitability pervades from the start, and yet the ending manages to surprise. There is a real authenticity to the characters and their romance, a read to savour with tissues!
