Publisher's Summary

Danny Kelly cares only for rock 'n' roll and fast cars. Too bad he's stuck in the capital of country music and he's banned from driving until he turns 21. Plus he likes other boys, a secret that he's vowed to keep until he graduates high school. When his stepdad's new truck roars off on its own, Danny discovers a secret that is endangering cars and drivers across America. It almost kills Danny, too, until he's saved by 17-year-old Kevin Clark.
Kevin's gay, handsome, and confident, but working with his dad's secret government organization has left him lonely. It's going to take a weekend of car chases, fiery explosions, and country-western singing to save the citizens of Nashville from certain death - but can Danny protect his heart and secrets as well?


Audible Editor Reviews

Aliens and clandestine government organizations play major roles in Sam Cameron's inventive, strikingly original LGBT sci-fi novel, but at its center is the relationship between Danny Kelly and Kevin Clark, two Nashville teens undeniably drawn to each other as they grapple with the destructive, extraterrestrial Ruins.
Josh Hurley turns in a versatile, pitch-perfect performance that captivates the listener from the outset, and adroitly captures this young adult novel's freewheeling teenage spirit and unique blend of the emotional with the supernatural.

What an adventure!

Any additional comments?

This was such a great gay teen tale! I usually complain about too much romance in my stories but with this one I'm complaining about the lack of romance between Kevin and Danny. I wanted so much more with them trying to find the King together. I felt like they were apart for most of the story. I hope they have more time interacting with one another in the next story, if there is one.

But this writer is talented. A uniquely told story that was refreshing, and fun with some serious undertones. But I truly loved Kevin and Danny and so want more of their story.

😍 Josh Hurley 😍 did an excellent job bringing each character to life and he is now one of my top ten favorite narrators.

Great Gay Teen Story

A great story (though a little too similar to Christine) that has great chemistry between the two main characters that leaves you eager for more.
