Joel has 901 unsent text messages saved on his phone. Ever since the thing that happened, there are certain people he hasn't been able to talk to in person. Instead of hanging out with people in real life, he drafts text messages. As dismal as sophomore year was for Joel, he doesn't see how junior year will be any better. But as Joel spends more time at the soup kitchen with Eli, the most amazing girl in the world, and Benj, the new kid whose mouth seems to be unconnected to his brain, he forms bonds with the people they serve there and begins to understand that the world is bigger than his own pain.
