    Inhaltsangabe

    From the award-winning author of Openly Straight, a story about two teens falling in love over a summer that throws everything possible to keep them apart. 

    Max: Chill. Sports. Video games. Gay and not a big deal, not to him, not to his mom, not to his buddies. And a secret: An encounter with an older kid that makes it hard to breathe, one that he doesn't want to think about, ever. 

    Jordan: The opposite of chill. Poetry. His "wives" and the Chandler Mall. Never been kissed and searching for Mr. Right, who probably won't like him anyway. And a secret: A spiraling out of control mother, and the knowledge that he's the only one who can keep the family from falling apart. 

    Throw in a rickety, 1980s-era food truck called Coq Au Vinny. Add in prickly pears, cloud eggs, and a murky idea of what's considered locally sourced and organic. Place it all in Mesa, Arizona, in June, where the temp regularly hits 114. And top it off with a touch of undeniable chemistry between utter opposites. 

    Over the course of one summer, two boys will have to face their biggest fears and decide what they're willing to risk - to get the thing they want the most.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Through the empathetic performances of two narrators, we meet gay Arizona high schoolers Jordan and Max, and their families and friends....  Froomkin and Perez's heartfelt portrayals ensure that listeners are in sync with the characters as they deal with everything from a traumatic sexual encounter and mental health issues to toxic masculinity and figuring out how to be true to oneself."

    Heart warming coming-of-age story

    Heartache , romance and disappointment..a rollercoaster of emotions. Max and Jordan certainly have a lot to deal with.
    A sensitive observation of dealing with ineffective parents, racism and prejudice. Well worth dipping into.

    loved every word

    This story was so beautifully written and resonated so much with me. I have to say that in the beginning, Jordan's narrator annoyed me to no end. He sounded overdramatic and whiny and everything else I hate...about myself :P I was always relieved when it came to Max's parts, not because Jordan's parts were terrible but I saw myself in them so much. Also, the part where he has to make everything about himself, of course. I realised that it wasn't the narrator being like this but more that he understood the vulnerability of this character so well and wasn't hesitant to portray it with all its ugly sides. I also had to smile every time Jordan's narrator imitated Max's voice and it sounded nothing like Max's narrator but very much like a stereotypical dudebro. I wonder if his perception of him wouldn't have changed as time passed. It kind of made him sound dumb sometimes- but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
