The Boys On The Rock - A Teen Jock's Coming Out As Gay

By John Fox

Billy goes to high school in the Bronx. He's sixteen, on the swim team, and is an all-around regular guy.

He's sort of going steady with a girl.

He's kind of popular at school.

But he's always worried that the secret fantasies he has about men would set him apart and make him "different," if anyone knew about them.

And now Billy faces up to himself - and his friends - as he discovers the complexities of life, the exuberance of sex, and what it means to be an adult in our imperfect world.

My thanks to blog reader (and author) Jon Wilson for recommending this, his favorite book from when he was a young gay man.
