As the two alternate realities run their course, Maybe in Another Life raises questions about fate and true love: Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps, most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate? Hannah believes there is. I like to think youve just come to your senses. Youve been in this city for twelve hours, according to my calculations, Ethan says. I met Ethan in my sophomore year of high school at Homecoming. Gabby and I didnt normally go to big parties, but I made her come. When Gabby came and found me an hour or so later, my lips felt swollen, and I knew I had a hickey. Shortly after getting back to town, Hannah goes out to a bar one night with Gabby and meets up with her high school boyfriend, Ethan. I was still living at home with my parents.
