When Robby starts his senior year in high school, he meets the new boy, Andy. Although Robby has never been physically attracted to anyone, he instinctively feels comfortable around Andy. As they get to know each other better, Robby realizes Andy is an outsider just like him, and harassment at the hands of the school’s bad boys makes it clear that Andy is a transboy.
When Robby’s eccentric Aunt Ivy finds some of her sentimental treasures missing, the boys put on their sleuthing hats to solve the mystery.

A FINE BROMANCE

Andy is the new kid at school. Beyond the normal stress that being somewhere new would cause any teenager, there’s more: Andy is trans.
Early in the school year, Andy meets Robby. Robby is odd in his own way, and thanks to being an outsider, he and Andy become friends. As they get to know one another, they sense they’re not going to be just pals, but something more.
Robby’s oddness is that despite seeming to be a regular high school guy, he has a secret: he’s not attracted to anyone, male or female. Sex is an abstract concept. He doesn’t know why, but all the flirting and tension you’re supposed to do in high school just doesn’t click.
As the school year progresses, Andy and Robby find themselves navigating all the obstacles of daily high school life for outsiders, with all the required harassment, humiliation and worse. Thanks to that, Andy and Robby form an profound bond, and become each other’s best friend, advocate, and protector.
But there’s also something more intriguing going on: Robby’s eccentric Aunt Ivy has objects from her eclectic historical artifact collection disappearing. The boys set out to find out the solution. The two sleuths solve the mystery, and in the process decide that, however different they are, they are fated to be together.
A Fine Bromance combines the story of two young men negotiating the GLBTQ spectrum with a fun mystery. Christopher Hawthorne Moss creates compelling characters (not just Andy and Robby, but all the supporting cast, including a cat named Mr. Duck) that will make you smile.
The moral of AFB is that no matter how different, odd or how out-of-the-mainstream you are, you still have a place in this world. And that there is someone for you. Highly recommended.
