Nathaniel Conti doesn’t feel real when he’s alone. Maybe that’s why he has a reputation as a
troublemaker—he’ll do just about anything to have everyone’s eyes on him.

But things are about to change. Nathaniel is in his first year of college, flung into new circumstances with
new people to meet. There are public speaking classmates, lacrosse players—and then there’s the
aspiring photographer who asks Nathaniel to be their model, who’s interested in more than what’s on
the surface. Nathaniel feels like he’s moving forward—until a former friend shows up, someone who
reminds him of habits and hurts he thought he’d left behind.

From the author of Icebreaker comes a deeply felt, gorgeously told story about confronting what's
buried, coming into your own, and finding your people.

Praise For…

"Graziadei (Icebreaker) vividly portrays the physical effects of trauma, such as bodily dissociation, and handles both Nathaniel’s and the supporting characters’ challenges with nuance. . .Via acerbic and vulnerable prose, Graziadei presents an empathetic portrait of a young person learning to do better for the people he loves and for himself."—Publisher's Weekly

The sharp, fluid prose propels readers further into Nathaniel’s complex frame of mind as the story is uplifted by its touching characters. . .A thoughtful rumination on the power of friendship, trauma, and healing."—Kirkus
