High school social dynamics and issues of sexual identity combine in this compact yet thoughtful entry in the Gravel Road series. Brett Miller is a high school sophomore who knows exactly who he is. He is the boyfriend of the fantastically hot Jillia. He is popular. He is normal and 100 percent not gay. Then he meets Zach in art class. Brett's attraction is undeniable and suddenly he doesn't know who he is anymore. The first person point of view enables the reader to empathize with Brett's confusion as he struggles to come to terms with his bisexuality.
