Summary: David Dahlgren, a high-school senior, finds solace in running with the track team; he’s a fast runner, and he enjoys the camaraderie. But team events become a source of tension when he develops a crush on one of his teammates, Sean. Scared to admit his feelings, David does everything he can to suppress them: he dates a girl, keeps his distance from his best friend who has become openly gay, and snaps a rubber band on his wrist every time he has “inappropriate” urges. Before long, Sean expresses the thoughts David has been trying to hide, and everything changes for the better. Or so it seems.

It’s day 9 of our read-along which means we only have four left including today’s! In case you’ve somehow missed it on our blog and twitter (where have you been?) we are doing a read-along blog tour of the BAME anthology, A Change is Gonna Come.

It’s day 4 of our read-along blog tour! If you didn’t know, me and Sophie are hosting a read-along of A Change Is Gonna Come, a BAME anthology all about change. We’ve both been waiting to read this collection for a long time, and reading a story a day means we get to discuss everything together. Which is GREAT!
It’s the first day of our A Change Is Gonna Come read-along and blog tour! I’m so excited to start reading the stories with everyone and especially for some excellent blogs to join in on the fun! I’ve been looking forward to reading this BAME anthology since YALC this year (as there was such a huge hype around it), so it feels great to finally get around to reading the first story.
