Everyone around Alvin seems to be obsessed with one thing—sex. Alvin finds it uncomfortable to think and talk about it and he knows he isn’t ready. His friends, however, think that all Alvin needs is to hook up with the right guy, so they start a plan to set Alvin up with three different guys. First there’s Allistair, a boy with strong ambitions. Second is Rowan, a trans boy. Third is Jesse, the popular heartbreaker. But the closer Alvin gets to being physical with someone, the more he’s uncertain that this is for him and he begins to wonder if he’s asexual. Can Alvin find the love that’s right for him? Find out in this emotional high/low YA romance.
