  • Fleeing to Rome in the wake of coming out to his Muslim-American family, a failed relationship, and blackmail, eighteen-year-old Amir Azadi embarks on a more authentic life with new friends. Late nights and dates in the Sistine Chapel start to feel like second nature... until his old life comes knocking on his door. Now, Amir has to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth to a U.S. Customs officer, or risk losing his hard-won freedom. -- adapted from jacket and perusal of book
