Publisher's Summary

For fans of The Gravity of Us - a glimpse of Cal and Leon's life one year after the launch.

In Houston, NASA's mission to Mars brought "Astrokids" Cal and Leon together. Back in New York one year later, Cal is excited to show his boyfriend the city and finally introduce him to his best friend, Deb, but everything feels different, from the ads posted in Times Square to the location of Cal's favorite falafel cart. Deb has new friends, a new apartment - a new life - and Cal isn't sure of his place in it anymore. Though all Cal wanted a year ago was to come back to Brooklyn, he no longer feels like he belongs. 

Phil Stamper brings his signature heart, wisdom, and romance to this touching The Gravity of Us short story.

Includes the first chapter of Phil Stamper's sophomore novel, As Far as You'll Take Me.

I wish it was longer!

3.5*

It was nice to revisit Cal and Leon, even if it was just for a few quick minutes! I'm glad Cal got a chance to get back to NYC and introduce Leon and Deb to each other, I think even though his life is now in Texas, NYC will always be home, and maybe one day he, and Leon, will be back.

Michael Crouch was wonderful as always! Cal was a little more vulnerable in this quickie than he was in The Gravity of Us, and that's one thing Michael Crouch portrays so well.
