About the Book:

Durian: A queer fruit that smells like shit when you crack it open. Rob: An act of thievery, often violent and petty. Durian and Rob: Two high-school students, caught up in the truly queer and admittedly violent shit that cracks open both their lives as they steal each other's hearts. But, almost ironically, none of it is petty. They stand on opposite sides on the field, rooting for their own teams and damning the rest, but all this changes when Rob breaks Rule Number One: Never cross the line. When they meet in the middle, it's no longer about the bulbous plastic heads, the garish school colors, or the plastic chicken feathers. It's about what they find underneath: flesh, warmth- -and blood.

About the Author:

Criss Cross makes her living in the visual arts but has a passion for storytelling as well. And yes, her name is Criss, not 'Chris' or 'Christina' etc.

Author's Note:

Please be aware that this story features a male-male pairing and there is sexy-times involved, though that's not the focus of the story, only an element that serves a greater theme that unfolds as the story progresses. Any and all feedback is muchly appreciated. Every few reviews I get, I'll edit accordingly, and I'll post up new chapters upon request of those who wish to continue giving feedback. Thanks! ~xx
