Review:

"Trumble's debut is a deeply moving and in-depth look at the perils and anxieties of being gay in high school. Nate and Adam are smalltown adolescents whose relationship is threatened when Adam moves to New York. Nate recalls the first moments of their romance and its development even as it's threatened by the arrival of Luke, a closeted younger teen who's attracted to Nate. Told frankly and honestly from Nate's point of view, the novel explores issues like coming out, parental acceptance (and its lack), antigay violence, and the attitudes of faculty and fellow students, whose ranks provide both antagonists and allies. Layered with the gritty everyday details of teen existence, the book provides a convincingly clear window into the many perils and sometimes scant pleasures of life in high school while never feeling overly grim; it will be appreciated by adults and teens alike."

Reader Eternal, January 27, 2013 (view all comments by Reader Eternal)
I can't say enough to recommend this stunning revelation of a novel. J.H. Trumble writes with compassion and grace about a contoversial subject. I absolutely devoured this beautifully written book. The characters are so real and became so dear to me. I was smitten from the very first paragraph. This bold and brave novel moved me to tears. We need more books like this one. Even if it isn't the kind of book you usually read, I would challenge anyone to read it and remain unmoved and unchanged.
