Twin brothers Brian and Matt Walker went to live with their mother’s brother after the death of their parents at an early age. Brian is still wracked with the guilt he carries around from a young age and sees the world through a distorted lens of self-loathing. When he meets a sexy and interested college-aged guy at the beginning of his senior year of high school, he may have finally found someone who can help him escape his mundane existence.

Matt has his life all planned out — he longs for a solid career in journalism after graduating college. But his tenuous hold on family life threatens his dreams of independence, as does the attentions of a closeted new transfer to their school.

Can Matt pull away enough from his family to come into his own? And will Brian finally get to grips with his past and allow his twin to chase his own happiness?

A beautifully written story told from each of the three main characters’ POV—Jake, the young, caring uncle, plus the teenage twins, Matt and Brian. They have become a tight-knit family in the wake of the tragic accident that killed their parents and Jake has done his best to raise the boys in a stable home. The love they feel for each other is clear and demonstrated throughout the story. But nothing stays the same and each man needs to spread their wings, develop other relationships, and find love from another man. Brian finds this hard to deal with at first and exhibits signs of jealousy, not wanting the close bond with his twin to be broken. But he has his own problems to deal with.

The twins may make look the same but their personalities and stories are different. There are arguments and fallouts, teenage angst and the coming to terms with their tragic past. This is a story of first loves and first sexual experiences—a wonderful coming of age story, which deals with realistic and emotional issues for many gay men. Jake provides a wonderful role model for the boys, and despite feeling inadequate in his own ability as a parent, he steers them lovingly along the road to adulthood.
