About the Book: Avishai Miller is your typical kid. Except that his mother is dead, he barely speaks to his father, and he's secretly dating Noah, a male classmate at his Jewish private school. Then their relationship is discovered, everything they know changes, leaving them struggling to find their feet in a new, unwelcoming reality. The book can be purchased from amazon.

She is the author of Nice Jewish Boys, Plus One, and her book Happy Camper is coming out later in 2020 . She is also the writer of the award-winning poem “Kaddish For Pittsburgh.” She has been nominated for the Lambda Award, two Rainbow Awards, and the Golden Crown Literary Society Award among others.
