At seventeen, Adam has suspected for a while that he might be gay. His sketchbook has become full of images of good-looking men, and he isn't attracted to any of the girls he knows. When he reveals his feelings to his devout parents, they send him to a Christian camp, warning him that there will be no room in their lives for a gay son. The last thing Adam expects is to meet someone he is deeply attracted to; unfortunately, Paul is more committed to his Christian faith than Adam is.

Adam tries to bury his attraction to Paul by concentrating on his art and his new friends Rhonda and Martin. When it becomes clear how unhappy Rhonda and Martin are at Camp Revelation, Adam and Paul are both forced to question what the church tells them about love. But with a whole camp full of people trying to get Adam to change who he is, what kind of chance do Adam and Paul have to find love and a life with each other?

"The plot overall was powerful and elicits an extreme emotional response, which good books should."

- Kt Kincaid, Bookseller, NetGalley Reviewer

"It deals with real-life issues that need to be talked about more in YA and its rawness just makes it better."

- Carolina Santana, NetGalley Reviewer

"A quick, entertaining read."

- Kirkus Reviews

"The dynamically sketched characters, sharp banter, and quick action will keep readers hooked through this sprint of a novel."

- Sachi Neumann Librarian

- Catherine Bellamy Resource Links
