Originally from a small town in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, Anita Kelly now lives in the Pacific Northwest with their family. A teen librarian by day, they write romance that celebrates queer love in all its infinite possibilities. Whenever not reading or writing, they're drinking too much tea, taking pictures, and dreaming of their next walk in the woods.



This book is a sweet love story between Ben and Alexei, who meet when walking the Pacific Coast Trail. Alexei is trying to come to terms with his parents disowning him because he is gay, Ben is recovering from yet another unsuitable boyfriend. Their chemistry and blossoming relationship is cute, it is nice to see a gay character who does not immediately give up on their faith because of their sexuality, and the thoughts on long distance walking and why people do it and what it means to complete things are interesting… (lisätietoja)

Lovely, sweet and sexy. Loved the women and queer youth in sports angle as well. Definitely recommend for those who like their sapphic romances a little less spiced, although there’s definitely some spice in this story.

When I first saw this at the library, I passed it by pretty quickly because I thought it looked a little cheesy, a little too lighthearted for what I was in the mood for. But then I noticed that someone I follow on bookstagram rated it really high, so on my next trip to the library, I snagged it. And I’m so glad I did. It was the perfect book to kick off Pride month: “‘ I am more trying to figure out… how I feel about a world that can make [my parents] believe what they believe. That [disowning me as their gay son] was the right thing. And where I fit now, in that world.’ Ben wanted to tell Alexei that he fit… He knew, of course, that even with every corporation in America shooting rainbow confetti out of a cannon every June, things like this still happened all the time” (46).

This book is so much more than I thought at first glance. It’s got heart and humor. It also has the perfect setting to really get to know someone new—hiking the Pacific Crest Trail—which is what brings together Ben and Alexei in this strangers to friends to lovers romance.
