Will doesn’t think of himself as an obvious gay guy and manages to avoid beatings at school thanks to not standing out. When he starts a relationship with a 23 year old man and gets outed on Facebook, there’s no place to hide, and he has to face his feelings head on.
“I don’t see why I have to become this new person just because I like guys. Most of who I am has nothing to do with who I hump.”
Will’s never been obvious about being gay. Not like Daniel, who takes the heat — and the beatings — at Spencer High. But then Will’s best friend outs him on Facebook, and his small-town life starts to spin out of control. If he’s not like everyone else, and he’s not like Daniel, then who is he?
