Rejected and alienated by those closest to him, a young gay teen embarks on a harrowing journey to find a place where he can truly belong and be accepted. The raw and unfiltered true story of Disposable Teen is a powerful coming of age tale that sheds light on the painful challenges and traumatic experiences that plague so many queer youth.

Born into a shattered family, tormented by a zealous mother, this story delves deep into the author's tumultuous journey of seeking love and belonging. Desperate to find a place of acceptance, he runs away to a world of endless sunsets and infinite opportunities. But beneath the facade of paradise, he is lured into a dark underworld filled with seductive vices that threaten to swallow him whole.

As repeated heartbreak shatters his illusions, Brian faces a defining choice: succumb to the darkness or rise from the ashes of his former life. With bridges smoldering behind him and family ties strained to breaking point, can Brian unearth the strength to embrace his truth? Or will he remain adrift in a sea of uncertainty, forever chasing elusive acceptance?

In this gripping and deeply personal memoir, the author delves into their journey of overcoming attachment trauma, navigating their queer identity, surviving sexual assault, and their experiences with drug use and sex work. With unflinching honesty, they shine a light on these difficult subjects and explore the complexities of healing and growth in the face of such challenges. This raw and emotional narrative will resonate with readers who have faced similar struggles and provide insight into the resilience of the human spirit.
