Billy Kennedy spends the summer with his gay uncle in Arizona, working with horses on a ranch to raise money for college. He falls in love and develops a relationship with Cara Mae, a feisty racehorse rider. Both Billy and Cara Mae are unforgettable characters-complex, funny adolescents struggling with some difficult issues in a less-than-perfect adult world. (Age 14 and older)
