Growing up isn't easy, and no one knows that better than Roberto. Raw & Gritty, Afuera follows Roberto, a young Latino man who comes into his own by being everything his tradition & culture tells him not to be. He struggles to understand & attempts to hide, that which is in his heart. From the outside, he seems to have the perfect life, but in fact, it's all a lie. In a dramatic turn of events, it eventually all comes apart, but through sheer guts & determination, & his willingness to succeed, he triumphs over this darkness & starts a new life for himself. Both a coming out story of a young man's difficult relationship with an abusive father & a look at modern teenage life, from school to sports to sexual conquests, Afuera shows readers - young & old, of any race - that even if they have a dark side, even if they don't fit in the way society wants them to, they have goodness inside of them, & all they need to do is let it out.
