From the writer of In the Red & Brown Water and Head of Passes comes a powerful coming-of-age story threaded throughout with stirring a cappella gospel music. Pharus is a brash, young gay man; Bobby, a well-connected legacy student. When these two compete to lead the legendary choir at their elite African-American prep school, their confrontations lead to huge revelations about identity, loyalty and friendship.
