Best known as the first teen novel to address homosexuality, I'll Get There. It Better Be Worth the Trip. is also renowned for its brilliant, timeless storytelling. This anniversary edition features thoughtful essays from Brent Hartinger (Geography Club), Martin Wilson (What They Always Tell Us), and others who reflect on the novel and its distinctive place in history.

Things look up when he and a boy from school become friends. But when their relationship takes an unexpected physical turn, Davy struggles to understand what happened and what it might mean.
