“Bobby Framingham is a high school football star. Bobby also is gay. When he's outed by a newspaper reporter, he thinks his life is ending -- but it's just beginning!”
-- Carol Schneck, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI


Description

Star quarterback Bobby Framingham, one of the most talented high school football players in California, knows he?s different from his teammates. They?re like brothers, but they don?t know one essential thing: Bobby is gay. Can he still be one of the guys and be honest about who he is? When he?s outed against his will by a student reporter, Bobby must find a way to earn back his teammates? trust and accept that his path to success might be more public, and more difficult, than he?d hoped. An affecting novel about identity that also delivers great sportswriting.
