Knowing he's gay and acting on it were two separate notions to Flynn Brewer until he'd met Keith, his first boyfriend, in high school. Before then, being gay wasn't as real as the pain of living day-to-day. Flynn's fear of coming out to his religious best friend, Zach, in their conservative community destroyed his relationship with Keith, but Flynn rationalized his avoidance and bottled up the truth until it was regrettably too late.

the time span of the story covers 4 or 5 years and the three main characters grow and have to go through a lot of issues. I remain glued listening to it throughout its entirety. the characters are flawed and things don't go perfectly but I did like the story overall.
