As someone who doesn't get embarrassed easily I sure was in for a shocker of a first day of my last year of high school. Everything was going fine in my boring school, boring town and boring life until HE came along...
I just wanted to get through the end of school and move on to bigger and better things. Apparently, that was too much to ask for. I should have known that life is never that straight-forward for me. Let's put it this way, I'm going to be in for an interesting few years of friendships, and relationships? Wait no - that can't be right. Well I guess it is, so strap in and let's both hope that this doesn't end in disaster!
Can a man ever truly go home again? Can he become who he's meant to be, in a place he never expected to find acceptance? These are questions for Wren as he struggles with life, love, and the legacy of his family.
Cory read tons about coming out, that one friend who's "more", and those stupid "He's straight, but can I turn him gay?" posts. His life was about as cliche as they came, but sometimes romance stories had to be true... right? Or they were all false advertising. All he had to do was risk telling Elliot he was gay and how he felt about him. Bam! Love!
Two teenagers, lifelong buddies, in college just outside of Bible Belt Southern USA could totally end up both gay, in love, and just not say anything to each other for two years of being roommates. Sure....
Cory might just stay in the closet and keep his best friend instead.
