Don’t Let Me Go
J.H. Trumble
Kensington Publishing Corp.

Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner. Nate Schaper found his in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirting became a real, honest, tell-the-parents relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is undaunted, He and Adam are rock solid. Two parts of a whole. But when Adam graduates and takes an Off-Broadway job in New York – at Nate’s insistence – that certainty begins to flicker. Nate starts a blog to vent his frustrations and becomes the center of a school controversy, drawing ire and support in equal amounts. But it is the attention of an underclassman who is looking for more than guidance that forces him to confront who and what he really wants.
