Simon Roberts’ plan for his senior year is simple — help his high school hockey team win the state championship and earn a college scholarship so he can get away from his dysfunctional family, especially his belligerent father and obnoxious older brother. When Simon and his teammate Alex Miller begin dating, they’re not sure if it’s a secret they should share or keep to themselves. But when they are outed, Simon and Alex must figure out how to move forward with everyone watching. Being the center of attention was in no way part of Simon’s plan for the year. Can Simon juggle school, commitments to the team, his new relationship, and an unexpected tragedy all before the end of the hockey season?

At the same time, the University’s student body is faced with an anti-gay attacker among them, and Simon might find himself being a target because of action he takes. However, not everything is chaos. Simon has the opportunity to use his story as a teaching tool to help others come out. While he’s never enjoyed telling his story, he looks for the courage to speak his truth to an audience.
