Is opening your heart to the possibility of love worth the risk of more pain?
After bouncing around the foster system since being removed from his neglectful mother, fourteen-year-old Linus Lightman is reluctant to trust or bond with his latest foster family, the Nelsons. He’s sure they’ll reject him as soon as they find out he’s gay. He finds a kindred spirit in Kevin Mapleton, and their friendship quickly evolves into romance. But then someone posts a video of Linus and Kevin having sex on the Internet, and experience has taught Linus that the scandal will cost him both the Nelsons’ acceptance and Kevin’s love.
