The 2009 Lambda Literary Award-winning novel is finally available in paperback! This new second edition includes two brand new bonus chapters, a foreword by former NFL punter Chris Kluwe, and an afterword by outsports.com co-founder Jim Buzinski.

They're like brothers, but they don't know one essential thing: Bobby is gay. Can he still be one of the guys and be honest about who he is?
