Summer school, a cute boy, and overbearing Armenian parentsâwhatâs a guy to do?
Alek Khederian was looking forward to a relaxing summer. But when his parents announce that heâll be attending summer school in order to bring up his grades, Alek is sure this experience will be just as hellish as his freshman year of high school. But he never couldâve predicted that heâd meet someone like Ethan.
Ethan is everything Alek wishes he were: confident, free-spirited, and irreverent. When Ethan gets Alek to cut school and go to a Rufus Wainwright concert in New York Cityâs Central Park, Alek embarks on his first adventure outside the confines of his suburban New Jersey existence. He canât believe a guy this cool wants to be his friend. And before long, it seems like Ethan wants to be more than friends. Alek has never thought about having a boyfriendâheâs barely ever had a girlfriendâbut maybe itâs time to think again.
Michael Barakiva's One Man Guy is a romantic, moving, laugh-out-loud-funny story about what happens when one person cracks open your world and helps you see everythingâand, most of all, yourselfâlike you never have before.
