This is more of a YA story.August is gay, a few close friends know, but he's waiting till after high school to come out. He has very little experience with boys. During the basketball championship he meets Luca ( I don't quite see the shameless flirting the blurb mentions) but they flirt a little and August comes into his own a bit. And low and behold who does he run into at college? Yep, Luca.It's generous to call it it a HFN or even a romance, but it is a cute, little coming age story.
