Synopsis

Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner. Nate Schaper found his in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirting became a real, heart-pounding, tell-the-parents relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is undaunted. He and Adam are rock solid. Two parts of a whole. Yin and yang.

But when Adam graduates and takes an off-Broadway job in New York--at Nate's insistence--that certainty begins to flicker. Nate's friends can't keep his insecurities at bay, especially when he catches Skyped glimpses of Adam's shirtless roommate. Nate starts a blog to vent his frustrations and becomes the center of a school controversy, drawing ire and support in equal amounts. But it's the attention of a new boy who is looking for more than guidance that forces him to confront who and what he really wants.

Tender, thoughtful, and unflinchingly real, Don't Let Me Go is a witty and beautifully written account of young love, long-distance relationships, and learning to follow your heart.

"Don't Let Me Go is a charming story. Trumble's love for the characters is evident on every page, and it's contagious." -- Robin Reardon, author of A Secret Edge

    This book is worth reading so many times!

    This book was an introduction to an author whose books I've grown to love so much! Nate and Adam explore the difficulties of a long-distance relationship while Nate publicly copes with the aftermath of a hate crime. Nate can be a bit of a jerk at times, but given his situation and the fact that he's a teenager, it fits so incredibly well and is incredibly authentic. There were times when I laughed with him, yelled at him, and cried for him. (And a particular time when I wanted to punch him in the face myself!) But overall, this book is worth reading so many times. Loved it!
