What have you got to lose when you fall in love?
When Jess first meets Josh at their Ivy League college she dislikes him immediately: an entitled guy in chinos, ready to take over the world. Meanwhile Jess is almost always the only Black woman in their class. And Josh can't accept that life might be easier for him because he's white.
After graduating, Jess and Josh end up working together in the same investment bank. As they lunch, spar and pick each other's brains, Jess begins to see Josh in a different light, and it seems their connection might be deeper than Jess could ever have imagined.
As their tempestuous friendship turns into an electrifying romance that shocks them both, Jess begins to question who she is and what she's really willing to compromise for love.
Everything's Fine is an utterly original and deeply moving take on an age-old question from a dazzling new voice: what have you got to lose when you fall in love?
