Collin is young, creative, and unhappy. A college dropout, he waits tables and spends his free time beautifying the streets of his hometown, with a box of chalk. Collin's art captivates passers-by with its vibrant colours and intricate lines - until the moment he wipes it all away. Nothing in Collin's life is meant to last. That is, until he meets Nina.

The daughter of a mega-rich virtual-reality mogul, Nina is trying to give back as a high school teacher - but her students won't listen to her. When Collin enters her world, he inspires her to be a better version of herself. Nina wants to return the favour.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a novel full of wit and spark... Irresistible and arresting. * New York Times *
Filled with exquisite pleasure... I absolutely devoured it. -- Geraldine Brooks * Author of People of the Book *
Coming-of-age stories never get old, and here's an especially sweet one... an old-fashioned romance that's wise and tender * Daily Mail *
What begins as a sparkling love story of an idealistic young teacher, Nina, and artist Collin, who works only in chalk, becomes a stunning, rich exploration of whether love, art, literature, and nature can compete with breathtaking virtual worlds. -- Helen Simonson * Author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand *
