Publisher Comments:

Star quarterback Bobby Framingham, one of the most talented high school football players in California, knows he's different from his teammates. They're like brothers, but they don't know one essential thing: Bobby is gay.

Can he still be one of the guys and be honest about who he is?

When he's outed against his will by a student reporter, Bobby must find a way to earn back his teammates' trust and accept that his path to success might be more public, and more difficult, than head hoped. An affecting novel about identity that also delivers great sportswriting.
