Cover for RAINBOW ROAD by Alex Sanchez

BOOK JACKET BLURB: Jason Carrillo came out to his basketball team [during his] senior year and lost his university scholarship. Now, with graduation behind him and summer ending, he’s asked to speak at the opening of a gay and lesbian high school across the country. But after spending years in the closet and losing his scholarship dream, what message can he offer? Kyle Meeks is getting ready to go to Princeton in the fall and trying to see as much as possible of his boyfriend, Jason, before they have to separate. When Jason tells him about his speaking invitation, Kyle jumps at the chance to drive across country with him. Yet he can’t help worrying: Will their romance survive two weeks crammed together in a car? Nelson Glassman is happy his best friend, Kyle, has found love with Jason. Now he’s looking for his own true love–and hopes he might find his soul mate during the road trip. But will being the “third wheel” in a trio ruin his friendship with Kyle and Jason? During an eye-opening post-graduation summer road trip, each of the three very different boys also embarks on a personal journey across a landscape of love, sexuality, homophobia, and above all, friendship. With Rainbow Road, Alex Sanchez concludes the story begun in Rainbow Boys and Rainbow High about what it means to be young and gay, again told in his unflinchingly honest voice.
