Freaks and Revelations - A Gay Teen Novel

By Davida Wills Hurwin

Thrown out of his parents' home for being gay, 13 year old Jason is living on the streets, hustling and trying to survive.

Doug is 17, living with an abusive dad and a racist family... and is pretty much addicted to violence.

There's a hate crime, where Doug thinks he's killed Jason. But he hasn't.

Told in alternating voices of the two characters, "this tragic but ultimately inspirational journey of two polarized teens, their violent first meeting, and their peaceful reunion years later is an unforgettable story of survival and forgiveness."

While it's fiction, it's
"inspired by the real lives of Matthew Boger and Timothy Zaal, who have shared their story on The Oprah Winfrey Show and NPR."
