Clichés are overrated and loving the boy next door may not be as genuine as the love Flynn sacrifices along the way. 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. Zachary Mitchell was the perfect son and role model as far as the outside world could tell. Active in his church while attending college, Zach had a personality that could sell anything, do anything, or be anything. Except, he couldn’t sell the truth to himself. Just when he was ready to reveal his internal conflict to Flynn and expose the darkness lurking in his heart, and in his “perfect” family, Zach met a girl and got sucked deeper into his chasm of deception. Caught in a living Newton’s Cradle of his own design, Flynn must choose between idealistic childhood fantasy, or a tempestuous passion that could ignite the very air he breathes.


Well written and quite a heart gripping story. Zach's parents are what LGBT kids who have them as parents, fear. Ms. Kelly could've been relating the story of any gay kid, in USA. Very touching and agonizing at times. There were parts of the story that made me want to smash Zach's head and scream at him, then other parts I wanted to hug him and keep him safe. Well done, Wade!

Coming of age journey with all it's bumps and twists. First kiss, first love, first friendship, and first jealousy.
