Publication Date: October 31, 2017
One (BIG) mistake doesn’t mean Marley is a completely awful person, right? Marley is afraid he will never find something to be passionate about, until he falls fast and hard for the new kid in town. Unfortunately for them, Christopher also happens to be the son of a very famous televangelist who is determined to prevent Christopher from having a boyfriend. Christopher’s parents’ decision to send him to a “pray away the gay” camp leads to a tragic experience that may not be what it seems at first glance. Then Marley tells a lie, and he finds himself caught up in a whirlwind of attention that he isn’t sure how to handle.
