Short Summary

When Matt Sheppard meets the girl of his dreams (Hope Hathaway) in a college computer lab, his love turns to an obsession. After a few unsuccessful dates and a great length of time, this obsession turns to psychosis as he invents Erin Corley on social media and hallucinates a manifestation of her.


After reaching a breaking point, Matt turns on his friends and family, and flees Mississippi to his great grandmother's hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. He then writes a very lengthy letter that is—in essence—a suicidal memoir.
