Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is a beautifully written story,  the basis of which revolves around two best friends. Sam and Sadie meet by chance in the hospital. Sadie’s sister is in treatment for cancer and Sam has suffered a catastrophic accident that’s left him hospitalized for months. They are two teens who bond over computer games. Other reviews have found the pair unlikable, but in actuality, they are realistic. Sadie and Sam can both be a little, selfish and self-centered, but they love each other. And no matter their ups or downs, they always find a way back to each other. There is a third character/friend, Marx who becomes their intermediary when they create their first game together. Marx is a lovable character who people just naturally gravitate towards. This story had deep social commentary on the America we live in today. Just one incident can change the trajectory of the lives of so many people.
