Black Sheep: Letting go of the Past is the first novella in the trilogy.
Black Sheep Trilogy is a Young Adult title that deals with heavy subjects but has little cursing and no sex.
Trying to rescue her son from a destructive environment, where the end of his last relationship almost ended in tragedy, Vic?s mother decides to move them all to a new town. Vic, glad at being able to start anew, takes the chance to create an image that would make his last two years of high school a lot easier.
But that plan is sabotaged when his new best friend, Jack, kisses him on New Year?s Eve, something Vic has been longing for and dreading in equal measure. Vic knows being gay in high school can be hell, and he?s scared sweet and innocent Jack won?t be able to handle him, or his past. It scares him more than anything now that his past has come back to haunt him, metaphorically and literally.
Vic tries to hide the horror of his past as long as possible, knowing that when Jack finds out what happened he will leave him.
As Vic takes a turn for the worse everybody but him realises how strong Jack and his love for Vic actually are. But is that enough for Vic to move on?
It also includes a new short story specially written for this edition.
