Chevy Durham is the big man on campus, the star quarterback of the football team. He's the guy every boy wants to be like and every girl wants to be with. There's just one problem... he's gay.

Nobody knows except James, a cute emo boy who Chevy meets on the first day of senior year. As things heat up between them, his secret is threatened to be exposed by a spurned cheerleader who sees the boys on a date at the county fair. She's been pining after him for years and isn't about to go down without a fight.

Can Chevy and James overcome the powers trying to separate them, or will their love be lost forever because of jealousy and homophobia? Join best selling author Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for this beautiful coming of age story about coming out and falling in love.
