Part thriller, part romance, The Friend Scheme is another twisty #ownvoices YA novel from Cale Dietrich, author of The Love Interest.
High schooler Matt's father is rich, powerful, and seemingly untouchable--a mobster with high hopes that his son will follow in his footsteps. Matt's older brother Lukas seems poised to do just that, with a bevy of hot girls in tow. But Matt has other ambitions--and attractions.
And attraction sometimes doesn't allow for good judgement. Matt wouldn't have guessed that Jason, the son of the city's police commissioner, is also carrying a secret. The boys' connection turns romantic, a first for both. Now Matt must decide if he can ever do the impossible and come clean about who he really is, and who he is meant to love.
When the closeted son of a mob boss meets the boy of his dreams in Florida, he's forced to juggle familial loyalty with the growing suspicion that his crush is part of a rival crime organisation. ... a sympathetic love story that captures his protagonists' insecurities and interests.--Publishers Weekly
Suspenseful and sexy, The Friend Scheme is a brilliant novel about not knowing if you should trust someone else, or even yourself, when you're in the closet. - L.C. Rosen, author of Camp
