When Jason made the choice to come out in high school, he knew not everyone would embrace the idea. But he also didn’t expect that Matt, the school’s star athlete, would target him because of it. And when Jason is caught starting at Matt for a little too long in the shower, he can’t help thinking the worst is yet to come…

This is a quick and fun read. You don’t get a great deal of backstory on the characters, but that’s to be expected with the length here. And, honestly, it’s not really needed as the author does a great job of showing the reader the characters in the moment as the events of the story are unfolding. It’s easy to predict where this one is headed from very early on in the story, and that was fine for me as a reader because there was enough in the “how it got there” to keep me interested to the end.
