Jason Carrillo is a jock with a steady girlfriend, but he can't stop dreaming about sex...with other guys.
Kyle Meeks doesn't look gay, but he is. And he hopes he never has to tell anyone - especially his parents.
Nelson Glassman is "out" to the entire world, but he can't tell the boy he loves that he wants to be more than just friends.
Three teenage boys, coming of age and out of the closet. In a revealing debut novel that percolates with passion and wit, Alex Sanchez follows these very different high-school seniors as their struggles with sexuality and intolerance draw them into a triangle of love, betrayal, and ultimately, friendship.
I love everything about this book and it's narrative. I read it before and listen to it twice. I think a lot of people should read or listen to this book, whether they are gay or not, and than ask themselves, "Is being gay a choice?". Who in their right mind will choose to be gay? Being gay isn't a chose.

Not all stories aimed at YA have a moral point of view, but this one does. Gay boys best be as chaste as possible and anything else will leave one traumatized, at the very least. It galls me that the act of intimacy that was most fully described was the one that was ... err... problematic.
It is a cute story and the three boys are suitably developed characters, but seem less adolescent than their years might indicate.
Loved this novel years back when I read it, love the audiobook. Great coming of age novel.
