The Other Zoey Plot
The Other Zoey follows Zoey Miller, a computer major who believes in numbers and codes. As such, she believes that romantic love between two people can only last if they have a high compatibility score. After seeing her parents go through their divorce, Zoey starts to believe that numbers can tell whether a relationship will last or not.
This belief led to the creation of her dating app which pairs people based on their rankings. Later, she meets Zach and another stranger but they part ways before they can learn more about each other. When Zach MacLaren, the school’s soccer star ends up at the bookstore she is working at, things change. Zach gets in an accident and gets amnesia, which is how he mistakes Zoey Miller for his girlfriend, Zoey Wallace.
Zoey decides to pretend for his health and her selfish reasons but as she begins spending time with Zach, she begins to fall for him. Stuck between two guys, will she find a way to choose between two different paths – a safe path that she has known, or a path that lures her to take new risks?
