LOCKED IN THE CLOSET... Not long ago, Truman Durant was outed to his parents, disowned, and forced to live in his battered pickup truck. Only knowing he was already accepted to the local university kept Truman from giving up completely. Now he fiercely guards his sexuality from everyone who knows him, wanting only to achieve financial stability through a degree and a job. He refuses to be homeless again, so not even his fraternity brothers know who he really is...or why he has a trunk full of lingerie and dresses.

But secrets have a way of coming out and some people aren't willing to tolerate let alone accept what they don't understand. Will Truman lose everything for a second time, or will he have the strength to stand up for his rights now that Stasi's by his side?
