A teen struggles to balance his cheery public persona with his more complex inner identity in this uplifting story

Everyone on campus knows Remy Cameron. He's the out-and-proud, super-likable guy who friends, faculty, and fellow students alike admire for his cheerful confidence. The only person who isn't entirely sure about Remy Cameron is Remy himself. Under pressure to write an A+ essay defining who he is and who he wants to be, Remy embarks on an emotional journey toward reconciling the outward labels people attach to him with the real Remy Cameron within. From the author of the bestselling novel Running With Lions, a story about overcoming the labels that try to define our lives
