Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Eighteen-year-old Amir Azadi always knew coming out to his Muslim family would be messy-he just didn't think it would end in an airport interrogation room. But when faced with a failed relationship, bullies, and blackmail, running away to Rome is his only option. Right? Soon, late nights with new friends 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 US customs officer, or risk losing his hard-won freedom. This story is a celebration of how life's most painful moments can live alongside the riotous, life-changing joys of discovering who you are.
