I've been racking my brains for the title of one book I'd meant to read some time ago but never got around to, and now I can't remember for the life of me what it is.
-It's a piece of GLBTQ young adult fiction (hence the topic).
-The narrator is male, snarky (and, if I recall, very cynical), and is (I believe) a big city resident.
-The novel is fairly recent, within the last five or so years.
-I'm positive the author is male.
-I think that the cover art was a photograph of someone sitting on a stoop.
-Covers the usual themes (I think): coming out, summer loving, the ins and outs of pubescence.

I most likely found this via the page for Peter Cameron's /Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You/, which, while wonderful, is not the story I'm describing. (Although cover art bullet aside, I might have just nailed that book in its entirety.)

Fruitlessly scavenger hunting on Amazon will eventually wear you down, so any help would be vastly appreciated!

I'm sure you've probably already found this, but I think that the book you're after is "Leave myself behind" by Bart Yates.

I loved this book, but was a little disappointed with his followup work. I guess I just wanted this story continued.
