The Chalk Artist

By: Allegra Goodman

“Collin James is young, creative, and unhappy.

Then he meets Nina…The daughter of a tech mogul who is revolutionizing virtual reality…

Against this poignant backdrop, Allegra Goodman paints a tableau of students, neighbors, and colleagues: Diana, a teenage girl trying to make herself invisible; her twin brother, Aidan, who’s addicted to the games produced by Nina’s father; and Daphne, a viral-marketing trickster who unites them all, for better or worse… excerpt from
