The State of Us (MP3 CD)
Dre and Dean have got my vote --Adib Khorram, award-winning author of Darius the Great Is Not Okay
When Dean Arnault's mother decided to run for president, it wasn't a surprise to anyone, least of all her son. But still that doesn't mean Dean wants to be part of the public spectacle that is the race for the White House--at least not until he meets Dre.
The only problem is that Dre Rosario's on the opposition; he's the son of the Democratic nominee. But as Dean and Dre's meet-ups on the campaign trail become less left to chance, their friendship quickly becomes a romantic connection unlike any either of the boys have ever known.
If it wasn't hard enough falling in love across the aisle, the political scheming of a shady third-party candidate could cause Dean and Dre's world to explode around them.
It's a new modern-day, star-crossed romance about what it really means to love your country--and yourself--from the acclaimed author of We Are the Ants and Brave Face, Shaun David Hutchinson.
