From the author of Make it Count comes the first novel in the In Focus series…
With his college graduation gown expertly pitched into the trash, Justin Akron is ready for the road trip he planned with his best friend Landry— and ready for one last summer of escape from his mother’s controlling grip. Climbing into the Winnebago his father left him, they set out across America in search of the sites his father had captured through the lens of his Nikon.
As an aspiring photographer, Justin can think of no better way to honor his father’s memory than to scatter his ashes at the sites he held sacred. And there’s no one Justin would rather share the experience with more than Landry.
But Justin knows he can’t escape forever. Eventually he’ll have to return home and join his mother’s Senate campaign. Nor can he escape the truth of who he is, and the fact that he’s in love with his out-and-proud travel companion.
Admitting what he wants could hurt his mother’s conservative political career. But with every click of his shutter and every sprinkle of ash, Justin can’t resist Landry’s pull. And when the truth comes into focus, neither is prepared for the secrets the other is hiding.

Trust the Focus by Megan Erickson
What can I say about this book except fan-frigging-tastic. It deals with some very now issues. The world needs to read this book. It's beautiful writing by Megan Erickson brings to light the political and personal life of many. If you don't know someone that is gay then crawl out from under the rock you live and seek out a friendship with these people. Most have better fashion sense then straight people anyway so you probably do know some. Male or female gay members of every community deserve the love and respect of all of us. To live without expressing yourself us to only half live. To quote a passage of this book " I am free now except for the cage in your heart" from Justin to Landry.
