When thirty-two-year-old Kevin discovers his college crush is still single, he determines to do whatever it takes to finally tell her how he feels-but this is one area of his life where even a second chance may not be enough to ensure success.

At UNC, Kevin was an awkward, reserved, and unassuming scholar while Melissa was the smart, beautiful, well-known student body president who planned to go to UNC's medical school after graduation. After several missed opportunities, Kevin decided that he, too, would enroll in med school-hoping that would give him the chance to finally pursue Melissa.

But just before graduation, she was caught up in a hush-hush situation and disappeared from campus. Kevin, on the other hand, went on to become a neurologist and best-selling fiction writer who never stopped wondering what happened to Melissa...or dreaming of one day winning her heart.

B N Y is a contemporary romantic comedy laced with nostalgia, smart humor, and an uplifting view of love and life sure to leave you smiling.
