Paul, a religious teen living in a small conservative town, finds his world turned upside down when he meets Manuel - a young man who says he’s both Christian and gay, two things that Paul didn’t think could coexist in one person. Doesn’t the Bible forbid homosexuality? As Paul struggles with Manuel’s interpretation of the Bible, thoughts that Paul has long tried to bury begin to surface, and he finds himself re-examining his whole life. This is an unforgettable book on an extremely timely topic that strives to open minds on both ends of the spectrum.

I had lost my faith because of my own struggle with sexuality, but Alex Sanchez helped restore that. This instantly became one of my favorites, almost from just how genuine and real these characters seemed. I'm going to read it multiple times and it'll break my heart and mend it over and over again. I loved this book.
YEs, he is my overall favorite author. I have read all of his books.
The section where Paul was coming out, and there was very limited drama. It's the ideal situation.
I really couldn't dive into this book, and I really wanted to. I couldn't relate to alot of characters or place their journey like Alex's other books. The story itself was great, but I couldn't get into having Paul and Manuel's pairing. I guess I expected it to be more like they became great friends and then Paul met another person to be his love, equally for Manuel.
