Storyline

A lot is happening to Nate: he starts high school on Tuesday, his parents are separating, and he's spending Labor Day weekend with his neighbor Andy and Andy's family. Andy is probably a senior, he's a jock, and Nate idolizes him. Over the weekend, the two go fishing, and after a lot of guy talk, they experience a jarring moment that exposes feelings and identity. On Tuesday, school has started; Nate sees Andy talking with two other athletes, and he approaches. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
