Follow Peter into the summer following his senior year to face new beginnings, new friends, and old baggage.
After a tumultuous final year of high school, Peter Mandel needs a break. It’s the summer of 1991, and his secret relationship with his ‘best friend’ Adam Algedi is put on hold as Adam goes away to Italy for the summer. On the cusp of adulthood, Peter has a couple of months to explore who he is without Adam at his side.
Enter Daniel McPeak, a slightly older, out, responsible college guy with a posse of gay friends and an attraction for Peter. Drawn into the brave new world of the local gay club, Peter embarks on a whirlwind of experiences—good and bad—which culminate in a hotel room where he has to make the ultimate choice.
But Adam will come back eventually, and there are promises that have to be kept. As autumn draws near and college awaits, can Peter break free of the binds of twisted first love? And what exactly is Daniel’s role in his life – a brief temptation, or something more?

Hi! Just finished reading You Are Not Me and loved it! Thank you for putting Peter and Daniel together. That’s just better on so many levels. I know I’ll spend the next few days thinking about the book, but my initial thoughts center around Peter’s errors in judgment and his seeming inability to make good, healthy choices. I feel sympathy towards him, because it can be such a journey to become a principled person. At least it’s been a long journey for me. And now we have to wait for the conclusion to their story! I just know it’s gonna be good!
Aw, yay! THANK YOU, Eliza! I’m so happy you enjoyed it. And, yes, Peter has struggled to get on the right track. But I believe in him!!! 😀 Thank you!

Thank you so much, Al. I really appreciate you letting me know. These books have my heart and I’m grateful for readers loving them too.
