Teenaged angst is doubly hard when you’re gay. Jamie Peterson’s problems, however, seem multiplied out of all proportion and you have to wonder if most of his fears are real or merely imagined.

He’s out to his mother and stepdad but not to his friends in school. However, everybody already seems to know that he’s gay, even though he’s gone to all sorts of effort to keep it hidden. He thinks his best friend Mason doesn’t know—but how can Mason be clueless if everyone else seems in on the secret? Are the people around him truly as homophobic as some of his magazine editors fear or will they be more accepting once the news comes out?

Jamie’s emotions are on a real roller coaster. Reading this novel brings back all the churning anxiety of being an insecure adolescent, when you analyzed and re-analyzed everything that people said around you, when you wondered if someone you had a crush on really liked you or was just being friendly.

The novel contains a graphic short that is so enjoyable to read that I wished the book contained more of them. It’s a very plausible story, filled with such nail-biting tension that it’s enough to make you experience Jamie’s worry, even if it’s only secondhand. It is also one of the better coming-out stories you’re likely to read in fiction.

- I couldn't finish it.
- I got about 1/2 way through & I gave up.
- Most of the time I was totally confuse or I just couldn't figure out what the heck was going on.
- I guess I was not used 2 her (the author) way of speaking.
- I've never read a book until now that was so hard to understand.
- or maybe it's just me.
