Jaime's a freshman in High School. He's gay but deeply closeted.
When a classmate learns his secret, Jaime panics and gets involved with hottie Celia as a cover - and that leads him to discover that her doctor dad is developing an untested drug - these pills that are supposed to "cure" homosexuality. Jaime steals some of them.
And he starts taking the little blue pills... and his relationship with Celia heats up.
Only now Jaime has to keep stealing them.
And in the middle of his pill-popping and girl-dating, he starts crushing on this guy Ivan, which is definitely NOT part of the plan.
There's a good article in the Chicago Tribune on the author (a high school librarian) here. And you can add your review of "Love Drugged" in comments!
