All 17-year-old Xavier can think about is graduating high school and moving to a place where no one will look twice at him. Everyone at school thinks he’s gay, but he’ll take the rumors over everyone knowing his truth. For 17-year-old, Natasha, life’s pretty good. She’s popular, has two best friends, and is dating the captain of the football team, the object of Xavier’s crush.
After witnessing a traumatic event at a Halloween bash, Xavier and Natasha experience a night which forces them to view the world through each other’s eyes. Soon Natasha is faced with the grim realization that her identity dictates how the people in her life treat her. Meanwhile, it’s a concept which Xavier knows painfully well. As they struggle to accept certain truths of their own realities, they can tell no one what’s happening to them. No one would believe them anyway, because they barely believe it themselves.
"It's been a while that a book has made me think and had such an impact on me in the end as Slip did. I also absolutely loved how Sbrocca caught my attention right at the beginning with her modern writing and use of pop culture. It draws you in, then Xavier and Natasha hook themselves into you. We need more books like this in the world, especially now with all the intolerance that is being spread everywhere." -Readers' Favorite 5-Star Review Excerpt
