"A Vigil for Joe Rose" is a collection of stories told with empathy and humour about the experience of being out in high school. As a unified collection, these eight short stories and a novella chart the journey of the main characters from first coming out to their growth into confident young gay men, and the challenges, triumphs, and losses along the way.
A unique "insider's look" told from the point-of-view of teens in high school.
Includes the hit novella The Last Coming Out Story
