Ryan is nine years old when he first meets Steph in an encounter that binds them together in ways they can’t yet understand and that renders them inseparable. On top of having to navigate the turbulent world of adolescence, Ryan also has to contend with his sisters and their mother, who share a kind of sixth sense that baffles as well as helps him. A ghostly presence from Steph’s past further complicates their world. The two share a long-running correspondence through which they document the natural – and supernatural – elements of growing up. Blending elements of romance, adventure, and the paranormal, Fate plays tricks of poor timing and misunderstandings on its protagonists and their families and begs the question, are we ever really in control of our own destinies?
