Status: Finished  |  Genre: Young Adult  |  House: Booksie Classic
Being a part of the GSA, having three openly gay friends, and kissing her best friend should be enough for Teagan to come out her Senior year. She's sure it's time, but when a boy from her past comes back and they click, Teagan wonders if it's worth it. Her best friend, Kali doesn't need to know her messy feelings or that she's been lying for all these years. Teagan tries to finish school with her head down but the cost of her secrets may be too much for her to handle.
