Summer 2020: Virtual Events Galore!

Dealing Dreams by Jeffrey Lo

Intelligent go-getters Zoe and Trey are striving to keep their heads afloat in today’s economy. They’ve graduated from elite schools only to face unemployment and chances at low-paying “McJobs”. They’re underqualified for jobs they want, overqualified for jobs they don’t want. Then Trey comes up with a striking new concept for a social networking website … an idea that if developed right, might make them rich and change their lives forever. As they pursue their Silicon Valley dream, Zoe and Trey’s lives do change profoundly … but not in the ways that they imagined.
