Willis Barrow Don't know about genre, but what's best about this book is that it's not one of your usual cliche gay love stories, where its all focused on just the two of them. There is some sensuality but its a very long process. Unlike most stories where they get it on 5 minutes after the other guy finds out, It focuses mostly on his struggle with how his secret feelings are interfering with his high school status. He's not ashamed but he's scared at how it'll affect his future if anyone finds out. And when it gets out, thats when he discovers who his real friends are.
