It’s been three gut-wrenching days since Bryce received that life-changing phone call in Savannah. He has avoided dealing with the situation, but now that his spring break is ending, he has no choice but to attack and face his truth as he heads back to his college apartment in Atlanta.
To Bryce, all of life’s issues are hitting him at once. If dealing with the reality of that phone call wasn’t bad enough, his closest family members are directly and indirectly questioning him about his sexuality. His conscience is eating him alive as a result of the decisions that he’s making. To add insult to injury, his pastor accuses him of something unimaginable. All of this brings Bryce’s internal conflict with God to an all-time high, leaving him at the point of no return—emotionally, mentally and physically.

Following Bryce Harkless has been a hell of a journey. Bryce definitely has a lot of issues, always did. With all the odds against him, he definitely has some serious mental issues, yet... He, like any human, bends with the curves and twists. This.. Book.. Is like.. A manual for those who choose to believe what they will. As graphic, and eloquent as it's written, it's ALL relevant. Kudos Jaxon.. Kudos!!
Love the ending!! A great read. I like the spiritual context of the book and I aprreciated the author's ability to layer in musical content and simply the recognizing the power of music. I look forward to more from this author.
