Matt Tompkins, a reserved gay man, has always played by the rules and has created a comfortable but unfulfilling life for himself. When his bold best friend Greg reaps unexpected rewards for standing up for himself in a very public display, Matt's jealousy leads him to risk everything when he's confronted by two attackers. Determined to be more like Greg, a split-second reaction brings astonishing changes to Matt's life--for better and for worse.

My Review

I found this book to be both depressing and uplifting. It is a remarkable book that makes you feel so keenly for the charracters. The author also paints a vivid and lovely picture of Chicago and life there.  I have never had such a deep emotional connection with a book.  I found myself crying for the characters as I read.  What a great book!  I loved the characters because they felt so real and well developed.  I enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster ride that the story took me on.  I give Gaybash 4 Fairies for an emotional read that kept me engaged the whole way through.  You can click here to add Gaybash to your Goodreads.
