Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Big Burr, population 10,024. 

Big Burr, Kansas, is the kind of place where everyone knows everyone - or so they think. But after being labeled 'the most homophobic town in America', a group of queer activists are moving in, and everything is about to change.

Linda welcomes the newcomers. The less they know about the death of her son, the better. Avery is furious at being uprooted from her life in LA. She dreads her classmates discovering that her mom is the head of the queer task force. And Gabe, a lifelong Big Burr resident, is no longer sure about the life he's built with his wife.

While new friendships are formed, elsewhere tensions reach boiling point. And every resident, old and new, must reconsider the true meaning of community.
