“It didn’t bother me that I was all those names they called me...It hurt that it bothered them so much.”
Being sixteen sucks! Being sixteen and awkward sucks! Being sixteen, awkward and knowing you are gay sucks even more!
Or does it?
Lu has no friends. Anthony keeps bullying him at school. His mother is growing suspicious. What else can he do but ditch to go hang out in Greenwich Village, it’s what his Uncle Jose would have done. After all, it’s 1993, and he is in the city that never sleeps.
So begins a comical coming of age of story of breaking the rules, making new friends and falling in love.
What about Anthony? What about his mother? Being a teenager may suck, but in a city of possibilities Lu finds out that it doesn’t always have to.
