In a society where "perpendiculars," opposite-sex couples, are forbidden, persecuted, freakish...Chris Bryant, a preacher's son, finds himself in love...with a girl.
Chris has always been faithful to his Anglicant religion - even though he's never felt like everyone else, never felt...parallel. And then it happens: he meets her. Carmen. Daughter of one of the leading Perpendicular prosecutors...the girl he knows he can't live without.
Carmen has always thought the treatment of Perps is barbaric - but to actually be one? To fall in love with Chris and openly admit to it is suicide.
Their only chance to be together is the Underground, a secret society Chris's sister introduces him to that is determined to mount an attack against the social restrictions of the Anglicant church. They want to make an example of Chris and Carmen, two Perps from high social families, to become the catalyst for an uprising that will threaten the traditions of their society's families and church.
But the cost of involvement just might be death for them both.

I really enjoyed this book. A love story that I can really relate to. I hope we continue to see more from the "Out universe". Hint hint.
A refreshing new look atvthe LGBT struggle. Laura Preble uses language that is easily relatable to teens. I have and continue to recommend this book to reluctant readers, and anyone who is interested in the fight for marriage equality. This is the voice for the millenial LGBT generation!
This is an amazing reversal of society's warped fears of Marriage Equality and homosexuality. Ms. Preble has created an excellent opportunity to experience a reversal through the eyes and heart of Chris who falls in love with "the wrong gender" person......a girl. This is a short, enjoyable read inside a different worldview that may provide the reader a few hours experiencing something outside our own warped existence and into another warped society. Rebecca
This book is a fun and thought provoking read. This work puts an interesting spin on one of today's most debated topics.
