“Soren, your lip?” Dad asked, pulling me back to the puffy lip and outright lie I’d decided to tell. It kind of sat badly on my tongue. Or maybe that was the rank taste of old blood. No, it was the lie. Totally. I undid my tie with a sigh.
“Tripped. I was looking at Chelsea Myers’ new sweater and—”
“Right, we don’t need to go into more detail,” Jared said, rolling his eyes to the back seat.
“Why did she get a new sweater?” Milo asked as he tried to dig something out from under his booster seat.
“Is it pink?” Lottie enquired from behind me. She was into pink. This week. Last week it was purple. The week before red. Which was why everyone in the house got new mani/pedis every week. Both the kids, as well as me, were in uniforms of red, black, and blue, our school colors. She wore a little pleated skirt of dark blue while Milo and I wore slacks. Sexist much, board members? Like, are we in the fifties or what?
“No, it was white and fluffy,” I replied, Jared giving me a look. “Chelsea has really nice…sweaters.”
“Mm-hmm,” Jared mumbled as we waited for the kids in front of us to pile into their cars. “It’s nice to know that the young lady has attractive clothing.”
Jared was bi like me, so he got the whole pretty girls in sweaters thing. So did his son, Ryker, who was also bi but married to a gay guy. Like Jared was to Ten. Like I said, our house was queer from floor to rafter.
A coming-of-age love story with high school, hockey rivalry, friendship, family, and coming out.

Felix has a reputation to protect. He's the kid who seems to have everything but looks can be deceiving. Spinning lies about his perfect life, he’s created a fantasy world that even he has started to believe. Only, it’s not long before everything crumbles, all of his pretty lies are revealed, and only his closest rival sees through his pain and stands by him.
