Carefree sixteen-year-old Levon is devoted to Harmony, his best friend and family. They’re not brother and sister, but his DJ dad and her yogi father have been in love for years, and they all live together in Chicago’s vibrant Boystown neighborhood. Life is good, until one afternoon when Levon comes home to a half-empty apartment: Harmony and her father have moved to Los Angeles. Can he forget their life together – and the day their relationship crossed a very important line?
Seventeen-year-old Harmony wants to escape from Chicago, a socialite mom who lives two miles and a world away, and especially Levon, the boy she loves in ways she probably shouldn’t. In Los Angeles, Harmony discovers a new side of herself, including a growing attraction to enigmatic classmate Elke. Where does Levon fit in, and why can’t she forget that summer day when everything changed between them? But as Levon and Harmony drift apart and back together, a sudden tragedy reveals a secret kept by their blended families.
Told through Levon and Harmony’s alternating perspectives, Satellite is both an exploration and celebration of the messiness of love.
