Waterstones Says

Written with compassion and real emotional heft, Stamper's thoughtful queer coming-of-age novel finds a group of friends standing on the brink of daunting new experiences.

Gabriel, Reese, Sal and Heath are best friends, bonded in their small rural town by their queerness, their good grades and their big dreams. But now it's the summer before their last year of high school, and each of them is going on a huge new adventure.

Reese has a design internship in Paris, Gabriel is going to Boston for an internship with a charity organisation and Sal is volunteering on Capitol Hill for a senator - while Heath is stuck going to Florida to help his aunt's business. What will this summer of new experiences and world-expanding travel mean for each of them - and for their friendship?

A sweet and compelling coming-of-age story that explores identity, the importance of found family and the complexities of falling for your best friend.
