'Mo', a bright, young Muslim from Manchester, has battled depression his entire life. As he takes tentative steps toward healing, he finds himself on a journey of self-discovery that surprises everyone - including himself. Moishe, an eighteen-year-old Chasidic Jew from London, has always known where his life will lead. As he studies religious texts in Jerusalem, he eagerly awaits the day he will marry and start a family, but tough questions force him to confront what's he's long ignored and to consider an alternative path in life. When a chance meeting introduces Mo and Moishe, their separate journeys to self-discovery collide in unimaginable ways and with unavoidable consequences that force them to traverse political, religious, and social barriers. Follow this YA LGBTQ coming of age story that speaks to the power of the human spirit, the bravery of two young men from different walks of life, and the often difficult plight for countless people across the globe whose hearts crave something their family, friends, and neighbours may not yet, or indeed ever, understand.
