This review is from: The Boys on the Rock (Stonewall Inn Editions) (Paperback)
Billy is a typical 16 year old high school sophomore. He's good looking, smart, and on the varsity swim team. So what's his problem? His friends are always trying to fix him up with girls. On the way home from school one day, Billy passes a store front that is being transformed into a political office. His eyes meet those of Al, who is readying the office. He volunteers to help in the campaign and also wants to get to know Al. Al and Billy begin to campaign together. They get to know each other. They also learn that their attraction for each other goes beyond mere friendship. After Billy invites Al to his final swim meet, they return to Al's house to explore these feelings. Al is much more conventional than Billy and is not as willing to be out. Billy cannot understand this and after a weekend at his Aunt's house, finally believes that this relationship will not work out. Billy must deal with these feelings and how they have changed his life.
