I dont see why I have to become this new person just because I like guys. Most of who I am has nothing to do with who I hump.

Will's never been obvious about being gay. Not like Daniel, who takes the heat -- and the beatings -- at Spencer High. But then Will's best friend outs him on Facebook, and his small-town life starts to spin out of control. If he's not like everyone else, and he's not like Daniel, then who is he?

"Harris's unflinching candor gives his novel credibility, substance and even the power to potentially change lives."

- Greg Armstrong-Morris Xtra

"Harris offers queer youth an example of post-AIDS gay life, as well as a warning against taking that history too lightly."

- Quill & Quire

"Harris' book is a gritty and harrowing, but ultimately uplifting and reassuring story... Will, Daniel and Julie are deep characters, full of life and complexity."

- Rob Bittner Keen Readers
