A moment in the lives of two young people, Alexander (Alex) Weston and Mathew (Matty) Tetherton, and of those around them, and others whose paths they cross.
A series of books that tell their story.
The lyrics of the song by David Bowie just about sum it up:
As long as we’re together
The rest can go to hell
I absolutely love you
But we’re absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same
Book One – I’ll Kiss You in the Rain.
A moment in the lives of three young people. Alex, the principal character who narrates the story is a gay teenager who hides his real self until he discovers his best friend is gay. An unexpected encounter with Jake, who is older and more experienced, leads Alex on a voyage of self discovery. No one is perfect, not even the angelic Matty, Alex’s best friend, they all have their secrets and it’s never going to be easy.
Book Two – Time May Change Me.
When you ‘come out’ it’s not always over in one go, sometimes it’s more complicated. When you’ve found the person you love you don’t want to be apart, sometimes it’s not that easy. Alex and Matty must confront the obstacles thrown in front of them and deal with an episode from the past that they thought was all over with, but which comes back with disastrous consequences.
