Another contemporary, look at me go! This one mixes hockey with LGBTQ issues, focusing specifically on the G there, and it is one of my most highly anticipated reads of 2016. Period. This seems like everything I could ever want in a book and more. Give it to me right meow. So join me in waiting on...

Even though they're identical, Tristan isn't close to his twin Robbie at all—until Robbie tries to kill himself. Forced to share a room to prevent Robbie from hurting himself, Tristan starts seeing his twin as not an NHL prospect, but a struggling gay teen who is terrified about coming out in the professional sports world. Trapped together in their claustrophobic room, Robbie suggests they run away with "Jimmy2416," a guy Robbie has talked to online for months but never met. Tristan must decide whether to tell his parents about Robbie's plan, losing his twin's trust forever, or go on a journey that will put their lives and innocence in jeopardy.
