Young love is never easy, but for Skyler, it's even more complicated than usual.
Read the heartwarming coming out story of Skyler Phoenix as he struggles to find love after his devout foster parents kick him out for being gay.
I knew it would be bad…
…but I didn’t think my family would abandon me.
I don’t understand my foster parents any more. How can they promise to love everyone at church but choose to hate me because I’m different?
The social worker told me to keep my chin up, but I don’t know if I’m headed for the streets or the orphanage on the other side of town. Wherever I go, I won’t let them discover my dirty little secret. I can’t risk telling them the truth everyone hates about me.
I wish I could take it back.
I wish I’d never fallen in love with my best friend, Cameron.
The Climb is the first book of the Love Grows in Honest Places series.
