Summary

They say these are the best years of my life. I’m not sure I agree. Sitting on the threshold of not quite a man, not quite a boy isn’t a very comfortable place to be. My name is Jonah, and in 1999 I was 16. That summer was the summer that changed everything. My parents sent me to camp to find God.... I found him in the eyes and actions of a sweet country boy named Neil.

This is a story about love… first love so pure and true. This is a story about faith and finding the courage to be who you are regardless of what anyone else thinks. It’s a story about growing up and realizing what makes the measure of a man. Hint, it’s not how tall you stand or how wealthy or intelligent you are.

It’s about having the courage to admit to yourself the truth...whatever that may be. This is my heart song. This is my battle cry. This is my threnody. It’s the words birthed from the heart of a boy who fell in love with his best friend at summer camp...his only friend. Join me as I tell the story of my first true love through the hands of best-selling author Daniel Elijah Sanderfer.

Sweet and lovely but too short

What a lovely story. I was captivated from the start. A sad ending and all too short. Still very worthwhile reading.

Could be my story! My experience!!

I too had a Neil, a church camp with memories left behind. I actually suffer it's truth every so often because my job requires me to drive pass the old camp every now and again. How I still love those moments. I'm married now and my wife knows of my past and loves me more for it. I miss my Neil. I miss our secret! Maybe I'll see him again. Only eternity holds that knowledge. This story can reach your heart. Such an amazing adventure. Please read this one.

PG-17.. bad ending

A nice first-love story, but mostly cliche. The story hints at sex while paraphrasing the acts. The ending (epilogue) was needless. Typical for a gay love story - about 30 years ago!

Great story, if a bit short

The story ended and I was left wanting more. The angel imagery was particularly touching.
