Victor Alvarez is in serious trouble. Now seventeen and flunking out of high school, he's been chosen as the leader of the violent street gang he's been a member of since he was thirteen. Riley Brewer has just broken a state record as the star of their high school baseball team. When Riley and Victor meet by chance, a connection begins to grow. When friendship turns to love, both young men realize their reputations contradict who they really are. Once their secret relationship is discovered, Victor realizes their lives are at risk. Refusing to hide in order to survive, Riley vows that only death can keep him apart from Victor.
The day fourteen-year-old Asher receives a Minolta camera from his aunt Sharon, he buys the last roll of black-and-white film and takes his first photographa picture of a twisted pine tree. He's so preoccupied with his new hobby he fails to notice his dad's plan to move out, his increasing alienation from his testosterone-ridden best friend, Levi, and his own budding sexuality. When his little brother drowns at the same moment Asher experiences his first same-sex kiss, he can no longer hide behind the lens of his camera. Asher thinks it's his fault, but after his brother dies, his father resurfaces along with clues challenging Asher's black-and-white view of the world. The truth is as twisted as the pine tree in his first photograph.
Book One of the Asher Trilogy
For his sixteenth birthday, Asher Price gets a date and a death threat. No one believes he's in danger, but when Asher's relationship with Garrett is revealed in his small Florida town, he's certain he will be destroyed. Still haunted by guilt over his brother's death and his mom's breakdown, Asher can't tell the truth. Instead, his best friend's practical advice to deny everything wins out.
When Asher's mom announces they're moving to Chicago, it seems like the perfect out, but how can he leave the only place that holds memories of his dead brother? Asher must choose between staying in a town where people know too much or escaping to a city where no one knows or cares, but either way, he can't hide from himself.
In the final book of this award-winning series, Asher exposes his greatest fears and finally develops a clear picture of his true self.
