In the wake of the post-9/11 sniper shootings, fragile love finds a stronghold in this intense, romantic novel from the author of Break and Invincible Summer.

It's a year after 9/11. Sniper shootings throughout the D.C. area have everyone on edge and trying to make sense of these random acts of violence. Meanwhile, Craig and Lio are just trying to make sense of their lives.

Craig’s crushing on quiet, distant Lio, and preoccupied with what it meant when Lio kissed him...and if he’ll do it again...and if kissing Lio will help him finally get over his ex-boyfriend, Cody.

Lio feels most alive when he's with Craig. He forgets about his broken family, his dead brother, and the messed up world. But being with Craig means being vulnerable...and Lio will have to decide whether love is worth the risk.

This intense, romantic novel from the author of Break and Invincible Summer is a poignant look at what it is to feel needed, connected, and alive.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 26, 2012 – Set a year after 9/11 against the backdrop of the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks, this quiet and insightful drama follows two gay teens as they wrestle with their feelings for each other, for the recent past, and for the present. Fifteen-year-old Craig pines for his ex-boyfriend, Cody, sublimating his worries by taking care of numerous stray pets. When the animals go missing after a break-in, Craig obsesses over finding them, enlisting the aid of his new friend Lio. Lio, a recent transplant from New York City, is still coming to terms with surviving cancer, the same disease that took his twin brother. A kiss sparks a slow, complicated romance that s muddled by ongoing contact between Craig and Cody, lingering trauma from 9/11, and collective paranoia as the sniper attacks continue. Moskowitz (Invincible Summer) captures the teenage mentality and voice in this tender yet emotionally complex romance. Alternating between Craig and Lio s perspectives, the novel does an excellent job of showing the collective hurt from the 9/11 attacks and how those in both New York and D.C. dealt with the aftermath. Ages 14 up.
