Catherine Ryan Hyde, bestselling author of Pay it forward, returns with a provocative tour de force on first love--a modern-day rendering of West Side Story born on a New York City subway car and nurtured under the windmills of the Mojave Desert. The subway doors open and close, and in one moment Sebastian's and Maria's lives are changed forever. Rendered in Catherine Ryan Hyde's stirring and evocative prose, Chasing windmills is a poignant love story that will leave you yearning for a subway ride that is a fraction as enchanting. Both Sebastian and Maria live in a world ruled by fear. Sebastian, a lonely seventeen-year-old, is suffocating under his dominant father's control. In the ten years since his mother passed away, his father has kept him "safe" by barely allowing him out of their apartment. Sebastian's secret late-night subway rides are rare acts of rebellion. Another is a concealed friendship with his neighbor Delilah, who encourages him to question his father's version of reality. Soon it becomes unclear whether even his mother's death was a lie
