For 13-year old Tim Stockdale, it's all about keeping his head down
and fitting in with the friends he's managed to make at his new school.
His older brother, Eli, is the opposite. He's trying to set up a
Gay-Straight Alliance at his high school, where he's a junior. Even
though the school board is against it, Eli’s not afraid of what the
fallout might be.
So when Tim's new friends start to bully a kid they think is gay,
Tim's torn - he doesn't want to do anything to risk being cast out of
But when Eli is hurt in a protest, Tim's own failure to do
anything starts to get under his skin. Will he find his way at his new
middle school, and figure out what's really worth standing up for?
