Books Info:

Althea and Oliver free pdf Cristina Moracho's whip-smart debut is an achingly real story about identity, illness, and love and why bad decisions are sometimes the only ones that lead to good. Spring 1996. Althea Carter and Oliver McKinley have been best friends since first grade, living on the same block in Wilmington, North Carolina. Now they're juniors, developing romantic feelings for each other - and then things go off the rails. Oliver contracts Kleine-Levin Syndrome, also known as 'Sleeping Beauty syndrome'- he's in bed for weeks at a time, and remembers nothing, especially not what he might do in the middle of an episode. What happens during one of those episodes shatters their friendship, and before they can talk about it, his mother enrols him in a sleep study in Manhattan. He leaves without telling Althea. She follows him, and the surprising conclusion to their lifelong story will completely satisfy readers.

About Cristina Moracho

Christina Moracho is a writer and grant analyst who grew up in Queens and moved to Brooklyn almost six years ago. She was living in Carroll Gardens but one day took a walk over to Red Hook because she thought she would love the neighbourhood. That turned out to be an understatement and finally in September 2010 she moved into her own place on Coffey Street. http://www.cristinamoracho.com https://twitter.com/cherielecrivain
