- DescriptionWhen the boy you love asks you to keep his greatest secret, do you? A thought-provoking, achingly complex vel about prejudice and the many meanings of love from Nina de Gramont, author of Meet Me at the River, which Kirkus Reviews called a must-read. Fifteen-year-old Wren has been content to stay in her best friend Allie s shadow. It doesn t bother her that Ally gets the cutest guys, the cutest clothes, and even a modeling gig Wren is happy hanging with the horses on her family s farm and avoiding the jealousy of other girls. But when Tim, the most intriguing guy in school, starts hanging out with Allie and Wren, jealousy is unavoidable, but t the kind Wren expects. Because even though Allie is wayyy into him and Wren hasn t flirted, t one little bit, it becomes increasingly clear that Tim prefers Wren s company above anyone else s. Tim s unexpected devotion comes at the exact time Wren s home life is about to be turned upside down. Her parents have just found out that the family horse farm is on land that was once a slave plantation and are struggling with whether to sell it. Wren aches at the thought of losing her horses and leaving town, but at least there is Tim...always a gentleman on their dates. Such a gentleman. Too much of a gentleman, even, and Wren begins to wish he d be a wee bit less gentlemanly. And as Tim s church becomes actively homophobic, his pressuring parents don t understand why he won t help spread the word, and he s w a wreck. Then he tells Wren something he s never told a soul, and Wren must decide what she ll really do for love.
