Summary
"Bobby Griffith was an all-American boy. He was a nice, hardworking kid from the suburbs who attended church and was loved by his family. When at age fifteen he realized that he was gay, he came upon a conflict for which he found no solution: His family and his religion taught him that his sexual orientation was a sin." "Through Bobby's poignant journal entries, his mother's reminiscences, and Leroy Aarons's keen journalistic insight we relive the emotional torment that eventually led Bobby to take his own life."--Jacket
