Lu's Outing: a novella by John Lugo-Trebble

1d8cd932-9787-44ca-8400-5e3a635c7d43

It didn't bother me that I was all those names they called me.... It hurt that it bothered them so much.” Being sixteen sucks! Being sixteen and awkward, sucks! Being sixteen, awkward and knowing that you're gay sucks even more! Or does it? Lu has no friends. Anthony keeps bullying him at school. His mother is growing suspicious. What else can he do but ditch school to go hang out in Greenwich Village, it’s what his Uncle Jose would have done. After all, it’s 1993, and he’s in the city that never sleeps. What could possibly happen? So begins a comical coming of age story of breaking the rules, making new friends and falling in love. But: What about Anthony? What about his mother? Being a teenager may suck, but in a city of possibilities Lu finds out that it doesn’t always have to.

This book is available for purchase on Amazon on Kindle and also in paperback as part of the Amazon UK Storyteller 2018 competition.
