Told between two time periods, 2000 and 2017, My Dark Vanessa follows the story of 15 year old Vanessa Wye, who becomes romantically involved with Jacob Strane, her magnetic and forty-two year old English teacher.
Fast forward 17 years and Strane is under allegations of inappropriate conduct from another former student. He reaches out to the one person he’s always trusted, Vanessa, who remains troubled and damaged due to their past.
How can Vanessa reject her first true love? Is it possible that what they had was real, or was Strane using her like these allegations claim he did with his other students?
My Dark Vanessa captivates with both murky memories and past trauma, along with a thought provoking portrayal of troubled adolescence and how one decision can change the rest of your life.
