#12 Lo (or Dear Mr. Wells) – Episode 1
It was ten years ago that Laura was Alan Wells’ student at Corpus Christi High School. She was uncharacteristically intelligent for fifteen years old – perceptive and vulnerable – dream student for a flailing English teacher. Years later, all that remains is the dust of controversy that surrounds their relationship. Now, at twenty-five years old, Laura has written her first book. She’s called it ‘Dear Mr. Wells’ and Alan is the first person she wants to read it.
Told through the lens of a young woman in retrospect, Lo explores how in the same breath, a relationship can both save and sink us.
