David Schoenberg is shy, nerdy, and has big dreams of becoming the next great composer. Those dreams seem to become reality when he is newly-admitted to the Barnard School of Music, a selective academy for future musicians and artists.
It's here that David meets and falls in love with fellow freshman, Connor Pfeif. Connor is handsome, a gifted composer, and the biggest flake in school. He’s everything the studious, hard-working David isn’t, and no matter how David feels about him, it seems Connor would never return that affection.
This all changes when the truth comes out after a wild party and David and Connor form a deeper bond than either of them has ever known.
But with this newfound love comes a dark side as he learns terrible truths about his new boyfriend—unfinished relationships, a history of reckless behavior, and suicidal tendencies. Things turn tragic and ugly, putting David to the ultimate test as he must decide if he can stand with the greatest love of his life.
Publisher's note: Symphony for Connor contains scenes of suicidal ideation and the death of a lead character.
