Adolescence is a hazardous way of life for seventeen year old Jeremy Tyler. His father died in a mysterious accident when he was a child, and his mother has since descended into alcoholic hell and forced rehab, which is when Jeremy is sent from the Fresno slums of his childhood to the posh estate of his overbearing great aunt Katherine and her censorious husband. Jeremy is liberated from an economic prison, only to land in an emotional one, and the change is overwhelming.

It’s not easy for him to fit into the upper crust, particularly because he’s trying to hide how much he’s attracted to other boys. Jeremy’s a good-looking kid, with a sleek swimmer’s physique, and the swim team’s champ is out to get him. He dates one of the smart-set girls in an attempt to keep his gay hormones at bay, but that doesn’t do him much good. Jeremy’s story is one of breaking free from the strands of dishonesty, deceit, and self-doubt.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joy | 2/2/2014

    " I really liked this one! Not so much a romance as a coming of age story with a little bit of a suspense plot. When his mother ODs, a teenage boy is sent to live with rich relatives; while accustoming himself with his new situation (including school, friends, girls, boys...) he also comes into a position to unravel the mystery behind his father's early death at about the same time he realizes his own danger. There are allusions to Pinocchio, which the author explains in great depth in the afterword, so much for anyone who wanted to do their own literary analysis. "

    " This book takes readers on an amazing ride through main character Jeremy Tyler's life, coming into adulthood, and reasoning with his sexuality. This also contains a great many number of plot twists. Expect to read this book in one sitting, with multiple crying sessions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sara | 1/26/2014

    " This was an interesting read for me. I felt that the character development was a bit lacking for Tiffany and for Reed (both of whom I see as pretty important parts of the story). I haven't ever read a coming of age story about a gay teen, so it was an eye opener. I can't be sure how much of the book was exaggerated as I found the scene with Coby at the cabin a bit over the top. I also thought that the Pinnochio theme was obvious and forced which I didn't appreciate. Not sure if I'll read the follow up book due out this month, but this was quite an experience. "

    " Some passages are so creatively and beautifully descriptive that I could close my eyes and taste the saltiness of being on the beach, etc. Believable main characters, and engaging story, especially the first half. The end seemed hurried and too "neat," as though the author was running out of space / paper and must found ways to tidy everything up quickly. "
