The Novice

By Lauren Hadaway


Alex Dall, a queer col­lege fresh­man, joins her uni­ver­si­ty’s row­ing team and under­takes an obses­sive phys­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal jour­ney to make it to the top var­si­ty boat, no mat­ter the cost. Intent on out­per­form­ing her team­mates, Alex push­es her­self to her lim­its – and beyond, alien­at­ing every­one around her in the name of success.
