Tyler Evans is your pretty average high school nerd. He takes advanced placement classes, is in the marching band, works in the IT department and is a scholarship student at one of Washington's most prestigious private schools, The St. Helena Academy.

Brad Stevenson is every thing most teenage boys wish they could be, he's gorgeous, popular, a star athlete, has more money than he knows how to spend and is dating the head cheerleader, but his life isn't as perfect as everyone seems to think.

One dreary afternoon Tyler discovers someone sitting at the window adjacent his own, crying. He reaches out in the form of a hand written note that he holds up so the other can see it from the window. This action starts a tentative but intense friendship between the two, that begins to develop into something more serious than either expected. Into something Brad denies due to his own personal demons.

It takes a major event and a grand gesture from Tyler to prove to Brad that there are more important things in life than living up to other people's expectations; like good chocolate, bad pop music and voyeurism.

^Fits the story very well
__________

^^There are a lot of careless grammar mistakes in here that a word processor probably wouldn’t catch
__________

*He keeps seeing Brad in his bedroom window crying and despite Brad having everything, thinks it’s sad that he has something to cry about and tries to help
__________

**He was trying to avoid his friend knowing about it, though, and lied about having only ever seen it once, although he owns the merchandise
__________

***It seems to be a way to work out makeup looks without putting it on the person’s face, like a sketch before a painting.
__________

This is technically a young adult book, but I wanted to note that both characters are over 18 so the sex scenes aren’t between two underage characters.
