Ogunquit, Maine. That’s not where you’d expect to find a guy like Danny. He’s not a tourist. He’s not a local. And he’s definitely not gay. As far as he can tell, only he and the bartender at Dishes, where he works as a dishwasher, are straight. But that’s not what bothers Danny. What bothers him is that he’s got straight-guy problems in a very gay town. While he’s hitting on a cute waitress, the cute waiters are hitting on him. And could the cute waitress have a thing for his thirty-six-year-old dad? It’s one crazy summer in a crazy Maine town.

This book is short and sweet, an interesting read for a look into the mind of a 19 year old who is wondering about his sexuality among other life issues. Danny is a likeable character, and the story moves along nicely, but I don't think this is a story I would recommend to anyone who is homophobic. Although, I think the author handles the subject of a teenager dealing with the issue of homosexuality realistically and tastefully.
