Upstate is an unforgettable and timely love story told through a series of letters between two young people caught in trying circumstances. Antonio and Natasha are taken on a riveting emotional exploration of hard decisions and the importance of individual human connections in this charming narrative with huge undercurrents of meaning. Upstate is a socially relevant and timely love story told through a series of letters between two young people caught in trying circumstances. Harlem, Chicago and Paris serve as backdrops as the letters, and the twin narrators, mature. Startling, real, and filled with raw emotion, Upstate is a bittersweet coming-of-age story with a message of undeniable hope in a world in constant crisis.
