When Philip fall in love with Eliot, he realizes it's time to tell his parents who he is and how he lives. His parents may not be ready for this; they face serious changes in their own lives. This novel is about what we miss- or choose not to see -just beneath the surface of our lives. And what happens when we know too much.
