Publisher Description

From the award-winning author of Openly Straight, a story about two teens falling in love over a summer that throws everything possible to keep them apart.* "Konigsberg demonstrates once again why he is one of the major voices in LGBTQ literature." -- Booklist, starred reviewMax: Chill. Sports. Video games. Gay and not a big deal, not to him, not to his mom, not to his buddies. And a secret: An encounter with an older kid that makes it hard to breathe, one that he doesn't want to think about, ever.Jordan: The opposite of chill. Poetry. His "wives" and the Chandler Mall. Never been kissed and searching for Mr. Right, who probably won't like him anyway. And a secret: A spiraling out of control mother, and the knowledge that he's the only one who can keep the family from falling apart.Throw in a rickety, 1980s-era food truck called Coq Au Vinny. Add in prickly pears, cloud eggs, and a murky idea of what's considered locally sourced and organic. Place it all in Mesa, Arizona, in June, where the temp regularly hits 114. And top it off with a touch of undeniable chemistry between utter opposites.Over the course of one summer, two boys will have to face their biggest fears and decide what they're willing to risk -- to get the thing they want the most.

Fun easy read

Read this book in two sittings and I absolutely loved how at the end of the book talks about harmony as it relates to the title of the story. I was sad that it ended good because I wished it continued on for a while.

Truly Amazing Read

This book is amazing! I love that the story doesn’t focus on the anxiety of coming out but really digs into the real joys and challenges of life. Well paced and emotionally complex. I was glued to every page. Thanks for writing this book.
