Learning Curves

#1

A fat woman with light brown skin poses with a hand behind her head, holding a cup of coffee in the other and leaning against a wall with light blue panels running horizontally across it. She has long black hair and is wearing a blue sweater, ripped jeans, sunglasses, and striking makeup— she looks very stylish. The title, “Learning Curves,” is above the person in white in an all caps serif font. The author’s name, Ceillie Simkiss, is directly under the title. The text is framed by simple flourishes on the top and bottom.

Elena Mendez has always been career-first; with only two semesters of law school to go, her dream of working as a family lawyer for children is finally within reach. She can’t afford distractions. She doesn’t have time for love. 

And she has no idea how much her life will change, the day she lends her notes to Cora McLaughlin. 

A freelance writer and MBA student, Cora is just as career-driven as Elena. But over weeks in the library together, they discover that as strong as they are apart, they’re stronger together. Through snowstorms and stolen moments, through loneliness and companionship, the two learn they can weather anything as long as they have each other–even a surprise visit from Elena’s family. 

From solitude to sweetness, there’s nothing like falling in love. College may be strict…but when it comes to love, Cora and Elena are ahead of the learning curve.
