How would you feel if a mysterious boy suddenly appears in the crack in your bedroom wall?
‘Love and Gravity‘Â follows that premise. Samantha Sotto’s newest work centers on Andrea Louviere. When she was just seven years old, Â a crack forms in her bedroom wall letting her see a boy. Though no sound travels through the crack, the boy can see AndreaÂ too. And then, just as quickly as it opened, the crack closes, and he vanishes.
Over the years, Â Andrea continues meeting with this mysterious boy in her wall. Then, on her seventeenth birthday, she receives a three-hundred-year-old love letter from Isaac Newton. Andrea knows that Isaac will change the world with his groundbreaking discoveries, and Isaac knows that she will change him.
Despite a burgeoning romance in the present, Andrea grows determined to follow his clues to their shared destiny. But Andrea must face aÂ heartbreaking decision: between what was, and what might be.
