After a tragic accident devastates his family, 16-year-old Rick St. James starts his junior year of high school without any friends in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah. When he meets Kevin Vincent, he's too distracted by the promise of new friends to see that Kevin has secrets of his own.
Having created an environment where he's feared and admired by his classmates, Kevin finds pleasure in using his good looks and violence to control and manipulate those around him. Secretly he cruises the gay club scene, turning tricks to earn money so he can party and get high.
As Rick's dad becomes increasingly violent and abusive at home, the two form a surprising and volatile trust. In this battle of wills, their precarious friendship will either keep their lives from blowing up around them or possibly light the fuse that will cause the explosion.

Powerful and Heart wrenching...
The characters draw you in from the very beginning. My heart broke over and over throughout the book.
It is heart wrenching and you find yourself wanting to fight for the characters.
This is a real tear jerker! Absolutely loved it!
