1960 was a turning point for the gay rights movement, the California juvenile justice system, and the citrus industry town of Corona. This short story follows all three through the eyes of Clark and Julio, two teen boys in their senior year trying to navigate small town morals, catholic upbringings, and, of course, each other.
