Through the empathetic performances of two narrators, we meet gay Arizona high schoolers Jordan and Max, and their families and friends. Joel Froomkin brings high-strung energy to Jordan, who has a poetic sensibility and a slacker attitude. As confident jock Max, Anthony Rey Perez has an authentic, natural-sounding charm. Jordan's mom is behind on their mortgage, so she resurrects their family food truck, and Jordan and Max take on the challenge of turning it into a profitable business during summer break. As the boys fall for each other, Froomkin and Perez's heartfelt portrayals ensure that listeners are in sync with the characters as they deal with everything from a traumatic sexual encounter and mental health issues to toxic masculinity and figuring out how to be true to oneself.
