Tyler: It’s 1998. The brutal murder of a gay man just made national news. I’m a skinny skater boy and low in the high school food chain already— no way am I coming out. But at a masked Halloween party, the cutest guy in school (and the only one who’s out) doesn’t recognize me. We dance together and he kisses me before I bolt. Now he’s desperate to discover who I am. If he does, he and his preppy friends hate me so much he’ll freak.

I want to tell him the truth, but I can’t.

Sutton: It’s 1998. Will & Grace is on TV, Ellen’s come out, and I’m the token gay prep everyone loves as long as I wear the right clothes and hate the right people. A mystery boy kisses me at my Halloween party, and I need to find him. My friends worry he might be a loser. I don’t care if he is. When I tell them that, they flip out… and suddenly the cool gay kid isn’t so cool anymore.

I have to find this guy, if only so I’m not alone.

Sutton: When I walk into school, they turn their backs.

I used to have friends. I used to be popular. I was the safe kind of gay: the kind who wore the right clothes, who threw the right parties, who played the right Will to all the girls’ Grace. But when I started dating Tyler, I crossed the line between prep and skater, safe and dangerous, popular and loser.

Now I have no one but him. All my former friends make fun of me… and when I was one of them, I went along with their games. Now I'm the target.

I’m slipping away.

Tyler can’t save me.

I’m not sure I want to be saved anymore.


Tyler: I’m used to being a loser. Sutton’s not.

Sutton was cool once. When his friends turn their backs, refuse to work with him, and smack him around, he breaks a little bit. What happened to the kid who shouted down his best friend? Where’s the guy who squared off with the vice principal? Every day, he drifts farther. Every day, I lose a little more of him.

Sutton’s slipping away.

I can’t save him.

But I have to find a way.

in Four Categories

  1. I meet West at a concert, and he decides we should be boyfriends for the night.

  2. We kiss on the subway.

  3. In the morning, he begs me to see him again.

  4. I drive out to his place in Jersey, where we wear fur hats in his hot tub during a blizzard, drinking nonalcoholic mint juleps, no parents in sight.

  5. We catch snowflakes on our tongues.

  6. He recites poetry in public.


Is this real life?

But as I see West more and more, the cracks begin to show. Maybe my manic pixie dream boy isn't what he seems. Maybe manic pixie dream boys are too weird for the real world, anyway. Maybe my high school would eat him alive. Maybe West is the weird kid.

Maybe I don't want to be the weird kid with him.

But what if one person's weird is another person's beautiful?

From internationally best selling author Annabeth Chatwin comes a book about wild love slamming against hard reality, and choices we make to believe in each other, despite stories the world may want to tell us.

#1 Best Seller

Best friends in love: sounds perfect. But Heath says he's straight, and even if he loves James, it has to stay on the down low. Throw in a performance of Fiddler on the Roof plus a vicious high school gossip mill— Heath's drowning. To be with his kindergarten bestie, Heath has to confront who he really is... then convince James he's serious. Heath's scared. He's crushing hard. And if he wants James, he's got to make his best friend believe in him.

From the best-selling author of He Called Me Beautiful, I Promise No Lies tells the story of two best friends who want more— and one who has to figure himself out before it's too late.

The Nutcracker Battle

★ Two boys.
★ Two ballets.
★ One role.

Gabe’s thrilled when he’s cast as The Nutcracker Prince— until he hears the rival ballet academy’s also performing a nontraditional Nutcracker, and super-hot, super-talented Kit is dancing the same part. Gabe has to out-dance Kit. Kit has to out-dance Gabe. Each school has to out-perform the other in the city’s annual Nutcracker Battle.

When a life-saving run-in brings Gabe and Kit together, sparks fly between two teen dancers with so much in common. Their studios hate it. Their choreographers flip out. The alternative paper scoops it as a tale of starcrossed lovers, battling ballet studios, and dueling princes. But Gabe and Kit scheme out a solution just crazy enough that, with the help of their Claras, could end the town’s Nutcracker Battle— for good.

A super-fluffy Christmas story by internationally bestselling YA author Annabeth Chatwin, The Nutcracker Battle is a stand alone novella in The Heart of the Holidays: A Stand Alone Gay YA Series.
