Happiness shouldn't be this hard…
Leteo Institute's revolutionary memory-relief procedure seems too good
to be true to Aaron Soto -- miracle cure-alls don't tend to pop up in
the Bronx projects. But Aaron can't forget how he's grown up poor or how
his friends aren't always there for him. Like after his father
committed suicide in their one bedroom apartment. Aaron has the support
of his patient girlfriend, if not necessarily his distant brother and
overworked mother, but it's not enough.
Then Thomas shows up. He
has a sweet movie-watching setup on his roof, and he doesn't mind
Aaron's obsession with a popular fantasy series. There are nicknames,
inside jokes. Most importantly, Thomas doesn't mind talking about
Aaron's past. But Aaron's newfound happiness isn't welcome on his block.
Since he's can't stay away from Thomas or suddenly stop being gay,
Aaron must turn to Leteo to straighten himself out, even if it means
forgetting who he is.
Adam Silvera's extraordinary debut novel
offers a unique confrontation of race, class and sexuality during one
charged near-future summer in the Bronx. (summary from Goodreads)
