Sutphin Boulevard - Santino Hassell, Rusty Topsfield

Michael AKA "Mikey" works as a teacher with his best friend, Nunzio at a high school.  They are hoping to make a difference in kids lives.  While he has been going through a lot lately, Nunzio is at Mikey's side.

 

Nunzio has feelings for Michael that he has never acted upon.  They both are afraid to destroy over 2 decades of friendship.  The trust and adoration is there.  Can they learn to go forward as more than friends?

 

Such a very sweet and yet emotional story.  We see what can happen, and not happen when two friends move beyond the casual.  I found this extremely compelling and I am not afraid to say I was hooked and could not put it down.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
