About the Book

You Were Wrong

Karl Floor has only one thing to look forward to: someday he will be a homeowner. His deceased mother left her house to her second husband and Karl with the stipulation that stepfather and stepson must live there together. Karl, a 26-year-old math teacher, has no further ambition than to outlive his stepfather.

After being viciously attacked by two of his students, Karl stumbles home to find a robber in his house --- a gorgeous young robber, Sylvia Vetch. As sparks fly, Karl helps Sylvia make her getaway and joins her at a surreal party. Karl doesn’t remember much from that night --- only that he fell in love with Sylvia, and was scared off by her handsome protector, Stony. Karl finds himself entrenched in Sylvia and Stony’s on-again-off-again relationship, and as his frustration comes to a head, Karl learns that most of his simple life --- house, family, infatuation with Sylvia --- is built on lies. Now Karl runs the risk of never owning anything, including his own heart.
