In-the-closet gay high school sophomore Skyler Phoenix found himself madly in love with his best friend, Cameron. As the two boys become more intimate, Skyler’s family life crumbles after his conservative and extremely religious foster parents discover their son’s secret relationship and quickly disown him.
Now, feeling lost and heartbroken, and ripped from the foster home he shared for years, Skyler struggles to understand acceptance and questions his place in an unnerving world. Piece by piece, Skyler’s defenses melt as he begins to experience unconditional love for the first time after moving in with a new foster family. With his old life behind him and new family by his side, Skyler slowly conquers his personal struggles of loss, self-love, and coming out as a gay teen. Even though he is well on his journey to acceptance, he remains unsure of how to love again.
As the nights get longer and the summer unfolds, Skyler finds himself completely enamoured with a new classmate named Kalin Mars. Remembering the love and loss of his best friend, Skyler is faced with the tough choice of guarding his emotions or allowing a new love be born from the ashes of his broken heart.
