About the book:

Ollie falls for Will over the holidays, but once summer’s ended, Will stops texting him back.

Enrolled at a new school – Will’s school – Ollie finds that the affectionate and comfortably queer guy he knew from summer isn’t the same one attending Collinswood High. This version of Will is a class clown, a basketball jock and, well, a bit of a jerk.

The last time Ollie gave Will is heart, Will handed it back to him trampled and battered. Ollie would be a fool to trust him with it again, right?
