Can a young man come out, find love, and survive senior year all at the same time?
Zach Denham, the editor of a small town high school newspaper, struggles to act like a "normal" guy by dating a female friend. Key, the school’s newly arrived attractive jock, forces Zach to confront the truth about his sexual identity.
Friends will become enemies when an explosive issue divides the school community. As Mrs. Trevott, Zach’s trusted and sharp-tongued English teacher advises, some of them will stand up for what they believe in even if they are standing alone.

I liked that the story focused on Zach, Key and their friends and the relationships among them. This is also a romance but it is written in a sweet way with no overt sex scenes to make anyone uncomfortable.
While Mr. Avery could be a little 'dry' at times, I felt that there were moments when he gave the characters and the scenes the emotion that they needed. He did draw me into the story and kept me entertained. I would listen to another of his works to see what he does with other genres of books.
I would love to go out to eat with Ms. Trevott. Her back story was sad but she endured on and was making a difference to her students. I appreciated that. There always seems to be that one teacher in every school that just connects with the students in a way that makes it all ok.
Zach's Secret is the story of a young man, a senior in high school, his coming to terms with who he is. This is a book that everyone should listen to or read. I would highly recommend it. Many things can be learned from this story.
I received a copy of the book for free in exchange for an honest review.
I definitely should have played the sample before downloading this one. If I had, I would have gotten the Kindle version. The reader sounds completely bored, even in scenes where the characters are very excited. I finished it, but only because I drive a lot and wanted to listen to something new while driving.
