Publisher's Summary

A poignant, heartbreaking, and uplifting story in the tradition of The Perks of Being a Wallflower about three friends coming of age in the early 1980s as they struggle to forge their own paths in the face of fear of the unknown. 

Michael is content to live in the shadow of his best friends, James and Becky. Plus, his brother, Connor, has already been kicked out of the house for being gay, and laying low seems to be Michael's only chance at avoiding the same fate. To pass the time before graduation, Michael hangs out at The Echo, where he can dance and forget about his father's angry words, the pressures of school, and the looming threat of AIDS, a disease that everyone is talking about, but no one understands. 

Then he meets Gabriel, a boy who actually sees him. A boy who, unlike seemingly everyone else in New York City, is interested in him and not James. And Michael has to decide what he's willing to risk to be himself.

Heartbreakingly beautiful

Haunting and lyrical, this poignant story reminds the reader of the fragility of love in a perilous time and the strengths of hope and community.

Disappointing

It feels like this is a debut novel. It felt like it had no purpose and especially towards the end it felt like reading the newspaper.
I did not enjoy the story or the characters.
If I hadn't already wasted many hours on it I wouldn't have finished it. For the last couple of hours I listened to double speed.

I hope people disagree with me. Maybe I just didnt connect with the writing style.
