Discovering George Michael's
Faith confirmed for David Crabb what every bully already knew: he was
gay. What saved him from high school was finding a group of outlandish friends
who reveled in being outsiders. David found himself enmeshed with misfits:

love along the way.
Richly detailed with nineties pop-culture, and

adolescence captures the essence of every person's struggle to understand his or
her true self.

with the unruly Jake. Jake thinks surviving this one will be a breeze ... but is
