What does it take to come out of the closet?
Since he was thirteen, Caleb has always known he’s gay. Now a college freshman, he falls in love for the first time. If it’s true that love conquers all, then will Caleb finally find the courage to reveal his secret?
In this tale about family, friendship and self-discovery, find out how Caleb discovers the path to the freedom he’s always longed for. Here’s a hint: it involves doing things outside his comfort zone, such as joining a spoken word group!
The book honestly felt eh to start off with. I’m not the biggest fan of in media res, which is how it started, but yeah. I was generally super confused, especially in the beginning. I didn’t feel emotionally attached to any of the characters, so it took me forever to read. The imagery was good I guess though. The ending was cute, which was the only thing that saved the book. It was also not own voices so yeah.
