The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves.

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: If he doesn't play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone's business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he's been emailing with, will be compromised.

Simply put- I love this story. I wish I had it when I was trying to figure out who I was.
This is a coming of age story, and a coming out story. Every one comes out- gay, straight, bi, trans, and coming out doesn't have to be about sexual realization. Rather, discovering who you are and being accepting of yourself. Sometimes that can be just as scary. What this story brings to the table is a new perspective on what it means to come out and being your true self.
Definitely one of my favorites and highly recommended.

Vic has just moved in with his boyfriend Jacob, he can't figure out where anything's packed, and his co-worker is pressuring him to have a housewarming party.

I love this series. I've been in search of a m/m book that isn't all lovey dovey. The relationship between the two main guys is romantic and hot but not unicorns and skittles sappy. Then there's the backdrop of sci-fi combining my favorite genres. Well worth your time.
