I can't believe THE HISTORY OF US is finally here! I love TJ and Bradley's story, and hope you guys do as well. It's more than just their story though. I had so much fun learning about each and every one of the characters Bradley and TJ encounter on their road trip, right along with the boys.

And a reminder...I write NA and YA, and THE HISTORY OF US is a Young Adult book, not a New Adult book. I love both categories for different reasons, but YA will always hold a special place in my heart and this book falls into the YA category :)

Sometimes it's not about coming out, it's about settling in.

Eighteen-year-old Bradley Collins came out a year ago and hasn't looked back since. Who cares if he doesn’t know any other gay people? Bradley has friends and basketball—that’s all he needs. Even if that means always sitting on the sidelines when the guys go out looking for girls.

When cute film-boy TJ tries to flirt with Bradley while his friends are doing their thing, he freaks. Yeah, he’s gay, but he’s never had the opportunity to go out with a boy before. He’s never had to worry about how his friends will react to seeing him with a guy.

Bradley accompanies TJ on a road trip to film TJ’s senior project documentary. In each city they visit, they meet with people from different walks of life, and Bradley learns there’s a whole lot more to being honest about himself than just coming out. He still has to figure out who he really is and learn to be okay with what he discovers.
