No idea on your book Julia. But if you want a good book with a gay (and kind of geeky) guy as the main character, I'd suggest Smoke and Shadows by Tanya Huff. There are 3 books in this series, which is a spin off of another series by Huff. Tony's ex in this series is the vampire, Henry Fitzroyal, bastard son of Henry VIII.

Tab (tabbrown) | 5006 comments Julia, I found a short descrip of the 1st one:

Sometimes keeping a secret is harder than telling the truth. Ian lives in a suburb where everything's the same. The houses are the same, the cars are the same, and their aspirations are the same. But Ian is different. Openly gay in his bigoted high school, Ian doesn't exactly fit in. But he's not worried - he's been training in dance for a long time and soon he'll be able to leave town and train to become a professional. Then he falls in love with Jess, the high school quarterback…

Does that sound familiar?

HJ Is it Almost Like Being in Love by Steve Kluger? Almost Like Being in Love by Steve Kluger

This is the blurb: A high school jock and nerd fall in love senior year, only to part after an amazing summer of discovery to attend their respective colleges. They keep in touch at first, but then slowly drift apart.

It's a wonderful book!

Is it YA or Adult? does it happen in the future? i mean the guy falls in love with the former quarter back?
