Ogunquit, Maine. That’s not where you’d expect to find a guy like Danny. He’s not a tourist. He’s not a local. And he’s definitely not gay. As far as he can tell, only he and the bartender at Dishes, where he works as a dishwasher, are straight. But that’s not what bothers Danny. What bothers him is that he’s got straight-guy problems in a very gay town. While he’s hitting on a cute waitress, the cute waiters are hitting on him. And could the cute waitress have a thing for his thirty-six-year-old dad? It’s one crazy summer in a crazy Maine town.

Rich Wallace is the acclaimed author of Wrestling Sturbridge, an ALA Top Ten Best Book for Young Adults, as well the Winning Season series. He lives in Pennsylvania with his family.From School Library Journal:
Grade 10 Up—During a summer waiting tables at a bar/restaurant that caters to mostly gay tourists, Danny tries to get to know his absentee dad better, figure out how to make a more significant connection with a girl he likes, and decide if he can stay friends with a guy who might want more from him than just a friendship. He is comfortable around his coworkers and customers, and their homosexuality is treated matter-of-factly. The author also authentically conveys a young man's uncertainty about developing relationships beyond a one-night stand, and how attraction to a person's personality is possible when there is no physical chemistry. This short novel is light on in-depth characterization, and conflict is minimal, but readers looking for realistic relationships from a male perspective will be rewarded with a quick, enjoyable read. A college-age protagonist and scenes with underage drinking and references to drug use and sex might make this most appropriate for older teens.—Natasha Forrester, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
