No Apologies is a gripping tale of two young men who find love despite long odds. Aaron and Greg are
unlikely friends at a military institution whose vicious rules of "Just Don't" inhibit a friendship that might be more. But the young men, both near graduation, find ways to work around the system in order to explore a relationship that is at times innocent and at other times all-consuming. As graduation comes and goes, life plans have to be made. Aaron's expected to attend college, Greg is insistent that he wants to pursue the arts. Neither man's family is open or receptive to their relationship, going so far as to disown them rather than face embarrassment. Despite every obstacle, and with the aid of one surprisingly supportive character, the two men come back together. But is it too late?

Set as a film within a story, Tibby Armstrong's third-person novel, No Apologies, is a heart-wrenching tale of two young men who are told not to love inside a system of harsh upbringing and social expectations. The story is gripping, the character development is strong, and the setting of a movie within a story is cleverly executed.

This is a "must read" as far as I'm concerned.
