Behind the Mask by Neil Heath-Hartley. Everyone is so afraid of change and the unknown that their minds are like a closed lid on a coffin. Those who don’t like change refuse to see it in their lives until too late, and then wonder what went wrong. At least Jerome knew the change was happening and tried to accept it from the beginning. His life changes when the school bully confronts him about his sexuality, instead of beating him to a pulp, the jock surprises him by wanting to know more – intimately more. Life never seemed better. But the relationship doesn’t last long and the rejection proves too much for Jerome to handle. Will he ever find a man to peel away the mask of rejection? Or is he destined to live a life without the love he seeks?
