Publisher's summary

High school can be some of the best years of life - and some of the toughest. Mark Mitchell's strategy for surviving is to emulate the mighty turtle: pull back inside his protective shell and keep a low profile to avoid trouble. And it works - nobody bothers him. Of course, nobody really knows him, either, even in a town so small it seems like everybody must know everyone else.

Mark certainly knows Bill Cromwell, whom he meets officially when his father volunteers him for manual labor at the school. Bill is his polar opposite: outgoing, gregarious, athletic. But when a massive snowstorm traps the two boys together for three days, Mark learns that being popular doesn't mean you can't be bullied or abused - or gay. And that bullying doesn't stop at the school doors.

Mark isn't naive. He's seen the news reports of gay teen suicides, and he's determined not to become a statistic. But it's not himself he's worried about.

Great storyline

I am unfamiliar with this author and narrator. I am an avid reader and listener to audiobooks having read/listened to hundreds of books. The story synopsis intrigued me so I took a chance.
The storyline is great. The writing could have used a little more polish, but it seemed to improve as the story progressed. The same goes for the narration. While I am not giving this book a raving review, I will most definitely look for more books from this author. He has definite potential. The narrators have a wonderful voice, and I am quite sure that his inflection and vocal animation will improve as time passes. Maybe the flack of feeling of his reading is reflective of the director more than the narrator. I wasnt there, so that is something on which I can only speculate.
I hope that both the author and the narrator continue to follow their passion and their hearts and I so look forward to reading and listening to both of them in the future.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
