Publisher's Summary

Chevy Durham is the big man on campus, the star quarterback of the football team. He's the guy every boy wants to be like and every girl wants to be with. There's just one problem...he's gay.

Nobody knows except James, a cute emo boy who Chevy meets on the first day of senior year. As things heat up between them, his secret is threatened to be exposed by a spurned cheerleader who sees the boys on a date at the county fair. She's been pining after him for years and isn't about to go down without a fight.

Can Chevy and James overcome the powers trying to separate them, or will their love be lost forever because of jealousy and homophobia? Join best-selling author Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for this beautiful coming-of-age story about coming out and falling in love.

Very good

The writer tells an all too familiar story of teen love between two high school boys. Should be a wonderful story- and it is. I like how the author added info at the end about LGBT community help- and help for scared young teens experiencing their first love with same sex partners.

Tells the story in a very easy to understand way and the characters couldn’t be more different from one another. A Handsome high school football quarterback jock fit and wrestling with internal urges and exterior realities in todays world. Chevy, the gay quarterback falls in love with James- equally handsome and in high school. James is the boy who is into the goth scene, thin, not a jock. But they connect on so many levels and conquer today’s homophobic culture that ends in a divorced similar jock dad who ends up in his own homophobic

great story

It was a great story! I listened to it at work when it popped up as a free one. I didn't know what to expect, though the title did make me think it was a lgbt story which I dont mind at all. love is love. it was a little graphic at parts, which is ok, but they are underage boys which was a little awkward but it's ok, it's just a story. the ending with his mom was sweet and almost made me cry. I wish this type of ending for all boys who come out.

the ending at school wasn't very believable to me. even though the reactions are what I want for everyone, kids can be cruel. at least when I was a kid. I hope to God this is how kids are today. if it is, I have so much more hope for our future.

sweet story

really enjoyed this story. It's true that even the so called popular kids have their own problems to deal with. I'm glad things worked out for Chevy and James and they had their happy ever after. Thanks to Daniel ES for the great story and Ryan H for the great narration.
