Jamie’s pretty much your average gay teenager.
He’s not out with his folks, he’s got a crush on a fellow high school
athlete, and his life isn’t perfect. It’s a good thing he has his
friend, Billy, to take his mind off things, and to show him that all
things are possible.
Billy seems to be all Jamie isn’t.
Billy’s openly gay, he has enough money to follow fashion trends, and
he’s got dates all the time. Lots of them. With older men. When Billy
starts acting weird and hiding things from him, Jamie’s whole life
seems to tilt off its axis.
His stepfather, who has never been
the greatest role model, escalates his behavior until Jamie dreads
going home. His English teacher assigns him tutoring sessions with the
object of his crush, the gorgeous track star Dylan. Jamie’s not even
sure he can talk to Dylan, let alone tutor him, but it’s impossible to
talk to Billy about it. Billy’s too wrapped up in a very dangerous game
they call bug chasing: trying to catch HIV.
Billy’s risk-taking nearly shatters their friendship, and forces Jamie
to look at the world in a whole new way. Can Jamie try to keep Billy
safe and still stay on top of homework, a new boyfriend, and keeping
his step-father in line?Read A Sample
