Three misfits, mismatched in every way—Henry Perkins, Brody Decker, and Danny Denisco—have been friends throughout high school. Now in their senior year, the boys realize their relationship is changing, that they’re falling in love. But they face opposition at every turn—from outside and from within themselves. Moving to the next level will take all the courage, understanding, and commitment they can muster. But it could happen.
Henry is a star athlete and the son of religious parents who have little concern for the future he wants. Brody is a quirky dreamer and adrenaline junkie, and Danny is an emo artist and the target of bullies. Despite their differences they’ve always had each other’s backs, and with each of them facing a new and unique set of challenges, that support is more important than ever. Is it worth risking the friendship they all depend on for the physical and romantic relationship they all desire?
In this unconventional new adult romance, three gay teens brave societal backlash—as well as the chance that they might lose their treasured friendship—to embark on a committed polyamorous relationship.
What an amzing read about three young men who are completely different in every way but together the three of them are unstoppable. Mia Kerick did an incredible job on writing this book about three young men who are best friends but they are also so much more to one another. Or at least they can be of each of them can learn to let go of the negative things in their lives and reach for what is amazing and right in front of them.
Three young men. Three very different up bringings. And best friends. Can they manage not only their families, but their senior year, and the new feelings they have for one another or will it all explode in their faces and leave each of them with nothing?
Henry is the good boy. He does not cause any waves with his parents when it comes to church and school. He does cross country running because that is what his father wants. He goes to church and does all things church because that is what his mom wants. The one thing he will not do is give up his two best friends, Danny and Brody. Nor can he let go of the feelings he has for these two guys either even though he may lose his family because of it. Henry is going to have to decide once and for all what he wants out of life. Is it the life his parents want for him or is it the life that he wants for himself? It is not an easy decision for him to make and if he does not man up he may end up losing it all.
Danny is what some would say a goth kid. His favorite color is black. He is the artist type. He is also openly gay in a high school that does not accept his sexuality but he has his two best friends by his side, Henry and Brody. Without their help dragging him out of the dangerous situation he has gotten himself in, he may not have realized the potential that he has for his life ahead. Danny does not see that he has much of a future but he does not want to let his best friends down so he applies for the same college that they do. Will Danny be surprised by his own talent and can he get over his fear of what might happen in order to find his path?
Brody is an adrenaline junky. The crazier, the better. More dangerous something is the more Brody loves it. But Brody leashes his crazy tendencies for danger to keep Henry and Danny from worrying about him too much. When things seem to become out of control for the three young men Brody finds ways to come up with more and more dangerous situations to see how he will and can handle it. But will Brody go to far or will Henry and Danny be able to pull him of the ledge that he seems to be on.
This was such an amazing read about three young men coming into their own lives and figuring out what will make each of them happiest. It is not an easy journey for any of them because they each put themselves in bad situations when they feel out of control but the journey is part of what they have to go through in order to come out on the other side. No matter where that will lead them. I truly enjoyed his read. Mia did an amazing job on this book.
