Overview

Like a million other young gay men, Bryan keeps his sexuality hidden because it’s safer that way. Yet other guys know he’s different -- they sense it, and make Bryan’s life pure hell. At home, things aren’t much better. He barely acknowledges his alcoholic father, and his mother has little time to spend with her family. So Bryan is alone, with no support, no shoulder to cry on.

Years of torture and torment, of name calling and humiliation, have taken their toll. Bryan does what he can to make new friends, but in trying to be something he’s not, he makes a huge mistake. Unable to cope with the repercussions, Bryan spends more and more time in a fantasy world he has created for himself. In this private world he is handsome, an object of desire. He is loved.

Is the hiding place as perfect as it seems? Or will Bryan go too deep and not be able to come out again?

    Thoughtful but a bit confusing

    The book, which deals with the psyche of a young gay man, does get confusing when his own mental illness comes into the picture. But the story is rich, the characters interesting, and the angst of this young man rings true in many aspects. Do all young gay men feel this way? Of course not. But that this one does is an expression of his life up to this point and his own insecurities and desires. An interesting read.
