Lexi has a secret.

She never meant for her mom to find out. And now she's afraid that what's left of her family is going to fall apart for good.

Lexi knows she can fix everything. She can change. She can learn to like boys. New Horizons summer camp has promised to transform her life, and there's nothing she wants more than to start over.

But sometimes love has its own path...

"A powerful indictment of reparative therapy--a sweet love story--and an unforgettable main character!"--Nancy Garden, author of Annie on My Mind

"Unflinching honesty and unfaltering compassion...A gem of a novel."--RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars, Top Pick of the Month on My Life After Now

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Since the death of Lexi's father, Lexi's conservative Christian mother has been a shell of herself. When she discovers the truth about Lexi's sexuality, her depression worsens, so Lexi agrees to attend a camp that promises to make her straight. But when she falls for a fellow camper, Lexi becomes conflicted. With this crush, as well as a new friend who doesn't believe in what the camp preaches, Lexi has to decide how she can be true to herself and still keep her family together. Lexi comes off as a bit naive about her camp experience, and the characters that surround her aren't always fully fleshed out. Furthermore, the eventual reveal about the camp leader and the truth about what has been happening is a bit predictable. But even given the overly neat resolution of Lexi's crush on Carolyn, their relationship develops in a satisfying way. This would be a fine additional purchase for libraries looking to shore up their LGBT collection.--Thompson, Sarah Bean Copyright 2014 Booklist"
