Thanks a Lot, Universe*
Author: Chad Lucas
Brian has always been anxious, whether at home, or in class, or on the basketball court. When he enters foster care and starts having panic attacks he wonders if things will ever get better.
Ezra's always been popular. He's friends with most of the kids on his basketball team. When Brian starts pulling away. Ezra wants to help, but he worries if he's too nice to Brian, his friends will realize that he has a crush on him...
But then Brian and his brother run away and Ezra takes the leap and chooses to reach out. Both boys have to decide if they're willing to risk sharing parts of themselves they'd rather hide. But if they can be brave, they might just find the best in themselves — and each other.
