In the small town of Spring Valley, molds werenât made to be broken, and high school senior Jay Hallâs been living comfortably in his popular jock one since adolescence. If it werenât for the colorful, outspoken artistic anomaly Brighton Bello-Adler, he might have been willing to remain there. Unnaturally drawn to Brighton, Jay knows he needs something from him, but is he ready to find out what that something is?
Temporarily ditching his old life, Jay climbs into Brightonâs Bronco and finds himself on a whirlwind road trip through parts of his small town he didnât know existed. When the excursion takes an unexpected turn, Jay is cracked wide open, and the person whoâs revealed does strange things to Brightonâs heart.
But just when it appears they could be headed toward their own shared piece of paradise, the road takes a sharp right turn into Jayâs lifeâwhere the real trip is about to begin.
In an unconventional love story that defies labels, two young men embark on a journey toward growing up, coming out, and finding their place in the world. Itâs a trip that ranges from heartbreaking to uplifting, funny to sweet, but always unique and personal.
