By Bill Konigsberg
Bobby is a 17 year old High School senior in conservative Orange County, California. He's the star quarterback on his school's football team, and his teammates are like brothers.
Except, they don't know he's GAY.
When Bobby is OUTED against his will by a student reporter, it's like everything in his life is rushing to sack him.
But he's a quarterback, and he's going to have to figure out a way to earn back his teammates' trust.
He's also going to have to figure out how to get to his future - a future that's going to be more difficult, and more public, than he ever imagined.
Interesting notes: This is Bill's debut novel, AND he's a professional sports writer (I bet that had a lot to do with the cool football setting.)
