Jesse Minkin is a study-mad Harvard hopeful. Anything that could possibly distract him from this goal is just petty teenage drama to him, including romance. His two best friends since childhood—the popular jock and the intimidating bad boy—have created the perfect shield for him, behind which he can safely practice his nerdy ways without harassment from bullies. However, when he meets the openly gay target of a violent hate crime, Jesse begins to see beyond his textbooks; perhaps there’s educational merit in petty teenage drama after all, and not all learning leads to Harvard.
When eighty-five-year-old art professor Ludka Zeilonka’s grandson is among a group of gay teachers fired over concerns that they’re silencing Christian kids in the classroom, Ludka is drawn into the political firestorm—as both sides battle to preserve their respective rights to free speech, the hatred on display raises the specter of her WWII past, a past she’s spent a lifetime trying to forget.
If his sixteen years experience has taught Mikey Alston only one thing, it’s this: Life is too damn cruel to face alone… The ice took our car off the road. The tree wrecked it. Tate and I didn’t make it out unscathed. My parents didn’t make it out alive… I was eleven, and that’s the day my whole world was ripped away from me. My brother, David, was twenty-one. All the family I had left, I needed him. He didn’t need me. David sent me away. Packed me off far across the country from my hometown in Devon – from Tate and everything I’d ever known, to live with grandparents I’d never known. Six years is a long time. But now I’m back. (Not through choice. Not mine, anyway). And Tate’s still here. Only… he’s not the boy I left behind. He won’t speak to me. Won’t speak to anyone. The one upshot of my return to a life I no longer fit and he’s letting me down spectacularly. Well, Tate, here’s the thing: I’m not giving up on you. I’m not everybody else. You can’t shut me out. You need me – we need each other. And we will be friends again. Best friends. I’m decided. It’s decided.

Patrick Witz has from his youth always been fascinated with science, strange discoveries, technology, earth and other worldly places presented in National Geographic and Popular Mechanics. He is a steadfast believer that knowledge and imagination are a powerful combination and readily admits he will forever be a student of the arts, be it creative writing, photograph, or any other artistic interest or endeavor. In his writing, Patrick likes to blend genres and his eclectic nature leads him into a labyrinth of fictional paths. Patrick’s writing goal is to bring his written words to life in reader’s minds… therein to strum emotional cords; sculpt intriguing characters; create captivating dialogue; and paint intricate colorful settings. One can say Patrick’s diversity is the spice of his writing – sometimes sweet, every now and again bitter, often mixed with a sprinkle of humor, a pinch of peculiar flavor, and finished off with an unsuspecting or emotional twist.
