At the Edge of the Universe
In Hutchinsons’ (We Are the Ants, 2016) heartbreaking story, it’s Ozzie Pinkerton’s senior year and he’s facing a whole slew of problems: his parents are divorcing, his older brother has joined the military and his boyfriend since 8th grade, Tommy has vanished. To make matters worse, everyone in town seems to have erased Tommy from their memories. Ozzie begins to suspect that the universe is slowly shrinking and he appears to be the only person who realizes it. When he's paired with Calvin for a physics project and the solitary student mentions Tommy's name, Ozzie begins to hope that Tommy is still out there. But time is running out and he'll have to work fast to get his boyfriend back.
