Not Exactly A Love StoryComic Book - 2014
It's 1977. Fifteen-year old Vinnie isn't having a good year. Apart from acne, his girlfriend moving to California and his paren't divorce, his mom announces that they're moving from Queens to Long Island. The silver lining in all this is that they move next door to Patsy-everyone's dream girl. Not that she'd ever notice him. But when Vinnie calls Patsy one night, it leads to a chain of anonymous midnight conversations. Under the cover of darkness, Vinnie becomes Vincenzo, Patsy's mystery caller, and the two share a side of themselves they would never reveal in daylight and develop a surprisingly real connection (despite the lies it's built on). As Vinnie gets to know Patsy in real life though, it becomes clear both identifies can't survive and he'll have to find a way to hangup the phone and step into the daylight.
