When a Goy Loves a Girl tells the story of Jonathan Reylds, a middle-class, Irish Catholic from Jericho, Long Island (also kwn as the Jewish version of The O.C. ), who surprisingly finds himself through the always enlightening adventures of college. More importantly, Jonathan finds Rachel, a young, incent, wealthy, Orthodox Jewish girl, whom he falls in love with at the spin of a dradle. True love should kw restrictions, but religion says otherwise, as does a Jewish father. Mensch or mensch, getting past a religious history over three thousand years old is harder than convincing Tom Cruise he's straight, Scientology is as real as Harry Potter, and Vanilla Sky isn't two and a half hours of sheer torture. Nevertheless, Jonathan gives up his heart in hopes of defying the odds and finding the chuppah.
