Nelson Glassman may have been exposed to the HIV virus and is terrified of testing positive. But what if being positive is the only way to keep the guy of his dreams?

Kyle Meeks finally has the guy of his dreams and is ready to do anything to stay by his side, but will “anything” include sabotaging his own future?

Jason Carrillo knows he has to face his future and is prepared to face it out and gay, but is he prepared to let go of the dream that has sustained him all of his life?

As their high school days draw to a close and these three friends move toward one of life’s most defining crossroads, each will be compelled to choose his own direction—and prepare for the consequences.

Bold voice Alex Sanchez continues the story begun in his critically acclaimed debut Rainbow Boys with this captivating and straightforward depiction of living, loving, and losing that goes straight to the heart of what it means to be young and gay.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An important book for gay teens and their allies.”


  • “Sanchez has written a respectable sequel to the noteworthy Rainbow Boys. He has a definite feel for the thoughts, feelings, and speech patterns of contemporary high school students, and his characters are believable…The narrative flows smoothly, with plenty of soap-opera dramatics to keep readers interested and a steamy scene or two to boot. Mature YAs will identify with the problems and decisions these individuals must face.”

    School Library Journal 

  • “The author expertly mixes coming-out issues with the universal complications of first love in this novel that culminates in the boys’ senior prom.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The opening of the novel summarizes the main events of the prequel, so that it’s not necessary to have read the first book to become absorbed in the ups and downs of the boys’ lives in this one. Sanchez, a counselor whose mission is promoting tolerance, illuminates various facets of adolescent gay life through his characters…But the book is not just a polemic (and there’s no graphic sex, if you’re wondering); it’s an involving story of growing up, not just growing up gay, and it deserves a wide readership.”


  • “The issues come fast and furious, but they’re handled well and are intrinsic to the story and characters.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Best Children’s/Young Adult Novell
