A Coming-of-Age Novel About What It Means to Be Teenage, Mormon — and Gay
A gay teenage Mormon growing up in western Oregon in 2003. His straight best friend. Their parents. A typical LDS ward, a high-school club about tolerance for gays, and a proposed anti-gay-marriage amendment to the state constitution. In No Going Back, these elements combine in a coming-of-age story about faithfulness and friendship, temptation and redemption, tough choices and conflicting loyalties.
“ The narrative opens some of our deepest concerns, and the prose makes us glad to be there.”
— Steven C. Walker, BYU professor
