Jason Carrillo came out to his basketball team senior year and lost his university scholarship. Now, with graduation behind him and summer ending, he’s asked to speak at the opening of a gay and lesbian high school across the country. But after spending years in the closet and losing his scholarship dream, what message can he offer?  Kyle Meeks is getting ready to go to Princeton in the fall and trying to see as much as possible of his boyfriend Jason before they have to separate. When Jason tells him about his speaking invitation, Kyle jumps at the chance to drive across country with him. Yet he can’t help worrying: Will their romance survive two weeks crammed together in a car? Nelson Glassman is happy his best friend Kyle has found love with Jason. Now he’s looking for his own true love and hopes he might find his soul mate during the road trip. But will being the “third wheel” in a trio ruin his friendships with Kyle and Jason? During an eye-opening postgraduation summer road trip, each of the three very different boys also embarks on a personal journey across a landscape of love, sexuality, homophobia, and, above all, friendship.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Virginia to LA by car: 3,000 miles and plenty of time to gain an understanding of what being gay in America is all about. These boys are distinct personalities and genuine teens, searching for clarity and identity and acceptance, trying to make sense of themselves and a world that can be equally bright and dark. Sanchez writes with humor and compassion. Some mature romance scenes, occasional frank language, and an inclusion of transgender/transsexual/bisexual story lines translate into a tender book that will likely be appreciated and embraced by young adult readers.” School Library Journal
“Groundbreaking.” Time Out New York
“An important book for gay teens and their allies.” VOYA
“Realistic and remarkably honest.” Lambda Book Report
“A forthright portrayal of growing up gay.” USA Today
“Fans of Sanchez’s first two Rainbow novels will certainly want to read this one.” Booklist
“YAs who have been following the series will be delighted to read this conclusion to the adventures of this trio. While the writing is not especially polished, the characters are appealing, their feelings are realistically portrayed, and the tone is supportive and hopeful. This might be a controversial book in some libraries, but it will also be an important book for readers looking for a sympathetic and empathetic portrayal of gay teens. Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults.” Kliatt
“Fans of the trilogy will adore this final installment. A little sex might make this a not-for-everyone experience, but it’s a perfect feel-good read for gay teens.” Kirkus Reviews
