Eighteen year-old Evan and his best friend Davis get beaten up for being loners. For being gay. For just being themselves. But as rough as things often seem, at least Evan can take comfort in his sweet, sexy boyfriend Erik–whom he’s kept secret from everyone for almost a year.

Then Evan and Davis are recruited to join the Chasers, a fringe crowd that promises them protection and status. Davis is swept up in the excitement, but Evan is caught between his loyalty to Davis and his love for Erik. Evan’s lied to keep his two worlds separate. Now his lies are about to implode…and destroy the very relationships he’s been trying to protect.

“Farrey… adeptly demonstrates how seductive the promise of belonging and power can be for those who haven’t known either.” 

Publishers Weekly

“This well-developed novel is great for readers interested in an approachable story about teen homosexuality.”

–School Library Journal

“Its treatment of AIDS is extremely well handled and welcome at a time when AIDS fiction has become almost nonexistent.”
