David Dahlgren, a high-school senior, finds solace in running with the track team; he's a fast runner, and he enjoys the camaraderie. But team events become a source of tension when he develops a crush on one of his teammates, Sean. Scared to admit his feelings, David does everything he can to suppress them: he dates a girl, keeps his distance from his best friend who has become openly gay, and snaps a rubber band on his wrist every time he has "inappropriate" urges. Before long, Sean expresses the thoughts David has been trying to hide, and everything changes for the better. Or so it seems.

Loved this book. You can tell the author is not a career writer (he is an attorney now) and it's refreshing. The storytelling and guys in it are straighforward and don't go on agonizing in their heads for pages at a time. It was nice to read a book more driven by conversation than most, as i feel that conversation is the most interesting thing in life.

A well-told story of a boy's coming of age and coming out. Honest in its depictions of the sexual confusion and angst of teens. Especially liked the differences between the three boys exploring their feelings for other boys.
