At fourteen, Robert had the best day of his life thanks to a boy named Sam. Following a long talk after school, the boys shared a kiss in the boy’s locker room and for the first time, they both know they are not alone. That same day soon becomes Robert’s worst. His father has found out his son is gay, and he greets the teen with the icy words, “I will not have a f*g living in my house.” With nowhere else to go, Robert takes to the streets and learns to survive, even if survival means selling his tail from time to time to eat or have a place to sleep.
Now, having spent four years on the icy streets off the shores of Lake Michigan, Robert wants out. After deciding he’s tired of mere survival, he puts an ambitious plan into motion. A plan life tries to thwart at every turn and is made more complicated when he meets cute college boy Mark. Love slowly blossoms, but will it wilt under the truth of Robert’s life? After all, Robert is damaged goods, and he knows it. A mere waif to be used and tossed aside as other’s whims suit.
Buy now to read a gritty yet hopeful coming out and coming of age tale of gay teen romance and friendship in the upper Midwest.
