Description

Danny thinks he must be the only seventeen-year-old guy in Cape Breton--in Nova Scotia, maybe--who doesn't have his life figured out. His buddy Kierce has a rule for every occasion, and his best friend Jay has bad grades, no plans and no worries. Danny's dad nags him about his post-high-school plans, his friends bug him about girls and a run-in with the cops means he has to get a summer job. Worst of all, he's keeping a secret that could ruin everything.show more

Review quote

"A very well done book about a front-burner topic, it makes a fine addition to the 'I think I'm gay' genre. Danny is very believable, and unlike so many 'issue' novels, the supporting characters are fully realized and multi-dimensional...A lot of kids will benefit from reading it...It's a story that absolutely needs to be told, and the author's approach succeeds beautifully. Excellent."--John Wetterholt"Follett Library Resources" (02/01/2012)show more

Back cover copy

Maybe Lisa had appeared out of nowhere for a reason. I was kind of like a frog in a fairytale who needed a kiss from a princess so he could turn into a prince. Only, instead of a frog, I was a might-be-gay kid who needed straightening out, and instead of a princess, she was a cigarette-smoking tattooed city girl with a bag full of mix tapes. I figured that was close enough. Learn to dance. Learn to cook. Learn to live. If only it were that simple. Danny thinks he must be the only seventeen-year-old guy in Cape Breton-in all of Nova Scotia, maybe-who doesn't have his life figured out. His buddy, Kierce, has a rule for every occasion. His best friend, Jay, seems unworried by bad grades. Danny's dad nags him about his post-high-school plans, his friends bug him about his non-existent sex life, and a run-in with the cops means he has to get a summer job. But worst of all, he's keeping a secret that could ruin everything.show more
