||As far as his friends can tell,
popular athlete James Liddell is happy in his relationship
with sort-of-girlfriend Theresa. The truth is more
complicated: James is pretty sure he’s gay. He’s also
pretty sure he doesn’t want to be. Fearing rejection but
burdened by his secrets, James tells the truth to his
family and friends in letters and locks them away, never
expecting them to see the light of day. Soon James meets
Topher, a cute drama nerd, and starts to think the
benefits of coming out might outweigh the risks. But when
his letters are stolen, James may lose the opportunity to
come out on his own terms. (Georgia Peach
