An Ordinary Boy

An Ordinary Boy by Brian CentroneTom Grove here...

Welcome to Anadam College.
When Tom begins his first year of college, he believes he’s going to come out and start a new life. But Tom’s plan to come out of the closet and meet hot college boys isn’t exactly foolproof. His new roommate is a straight jock, the gay club at school is made up of outcasts, and the realization that life is less like an Abercrombie & Fitch catalog and more like the everyday low prices of Wal-Mart is only the beginning.
