Rafe is a normal teenager from Boulder, Colorado. He plays soccer. He's won skiing prizes. He likes to write. And, oh yeah, he's gay. He's been out since 8th grade, and he isn't teased, and he goes to other high schools and talks about tolerance and stuff. And while that's important, all Rafe really wants is to just be a regular guy. Not that GAY guy. To have it be a part of who he is, but not the headline, every single time. A book for anyone who ever felt trapped within just one part of who they are, Openly Straight is a funny, honest and smart novel about being out, being real, and all the things "be yourself" can mean. A terrific new novel with a very contemporary take on coming out and an age- old look at falling in love.,Brent Hartinger (author of Geography Club and The Elephant of Surprise). An original thought provoking, hilarious story about the importance of embracing your true identity, and the cost to yourself and others when you don't.,Julie Anne Peters, (author of Luna and Keeping You a Secret).
