It started with a kiss as love stories often do. Jesse Andrews had the arms of a Greek god and he was on the track team. The night of our kiss fell on a Friday. Then, only a few days later, Finâ€™s world is turned upside down and not in a good head-over-heels-in-love way when Jesse cruelly outs him. An event which ultimately leads to his family leaving town. But a fresh start is not going to change the truth of who Fin is. And it is not going to stop his sexuality causing everyone all sorts of problems. Everyone, that is, apart from his new best friend Poppy, her girlfriend in waiting June, and his latest crush Rye. So, while Fin and Rye are enjoying some seriously intimate moonlit moments together, Finâ€™s parents decide to pack him off to the local ReSouled therapy camp. Itâ€™s a nightmare and thereâ€™s no easy way out. Can Finâ€™s squad hatch a plan outrageous enough to spring him before the conversion acolytes force him onto the straight and narrow?
