A Push and a Shove
A mesmerizing debut novel of vengeance.
Tortured by memories of being bullied all through school, Ben Reilly sets out to finally put his demons to rest. Although Terrence O'Connor, the beautiful boy who was his tormentor, is now a successful writer in Manhattan, he is also a man searching out his own identity. As Ben and Terrence form an unlikely friendship, hidden motives and long-kept secrets bubble to the surface. Does Ben realize he's fallen in love with Terrence? And can Terrence admit to his own confused feelings? Darkly disturbing and brilliantly written, here is a chilling depiction of the once-victim who unwittingly becomes the bully.
