And everyone in his school, his town - seems like the world - thinks they understand. But they don't - they can't. And now, about to graduate from high school, Josh is still trying to sort through the pieces. First there's Rachel, the girl he thought he'd lost years ago. She's back, and she's determined to be part of his life, whether he wants her there or not. Then there are college decisions to make, and the toughest baseball game of his life coming up, and a coach who won't stop pushing Josh all the way to the brink. And then there's Eve. Her return brings with it all the memories of Josh's past. It's time for Josh to face the truth about what happened. If only he knew what the truth was ... After attending Yale University, Barry Lyga worked in the comic book industry before returning to his first love, writing. He is the author of The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl. Boy Toy is his second book set in South Brook High School."--Provided by publisher.
