Excerpt:

It’s summer of 1977 and sex is on Tracy McCarthy’s mind. Newly graduated from high school, the gender fluid teen is now 18 and hell-bent on losing his virginity. On the first day of his final summer off, he discovers sex in a public restroom at the beach. He also meets Angel Rosa, an incredibly handsome Latino who invites Tracy to take a walk on the wild side in alien territory.

Tracy takes the subway up to Spanish Harlem for what he hopes will be more than just a tryst. There, he’s exposed to a vibrantly different life and a way of living filled with spicy foods, rhythmic music, and sexually-charged men. Along the way, the waif-like, cross-dressing young man also discovers that on the path to finding what he seeks, dark and disturbing dangers lurk — in the minds of men, walking the streets, and in the hallways of Spanish Harlem tenements.

READ MORE

When Angel turns out to be something other than what Tracy had expected him to be, William Rosa, Angel’s stepbrother, shows him that acceptance comes from within, and that love, frequently comes from the most unexpected places, and sometimes, as a direct result of unwise decisions.

Growing up always contains surprises but will Tracy like the ones he finds on the way? And more importantly, will he like the things he learns about himself?
