    David is your average teen, a track star, good student--someone that we all could use in our lives.

    However a problem develops when David develops a crush on a teammate. David does not know how to react to this, slowly he has to start to accept himself for who he is he. But will he risk everything to gain the love of his life?

    I really enjoyed this book--there where a few times when I acted immature while reading the book and snickered at a few sex scenes. There are quite a few sex scenes in the book but they are honestly needed to tell the story and help move it along. Besides I don't know many teens who haven't thought about sex or have experiences it at David's age.

    Something that shows that Mr. Bantle knew his audience. I have been close friends with a few 'track stars' in which all they talked about was sex... and ate--a lot. Which David does. I joked that the book was about 'Sex and Eating'--but it is soo much more.

    I would highly suggest this book to anyone who enjoys queer YA. I'm looking forward to see what Bantle releases next.

    The Federal Trade Commission tells me, that I have to tell you, I recieved this
    review copy from the publisher.
