Eighteen-year-olds Ruben Montez and Zach Knight are two members of the boy-band Saturday, one of the biggest acts in America. Along with their bandmates, Angel Phan and Jon Braxton, the four are teen heartthrobs in front of the cameras and best friends backstage.
But privately, the pressure to stay in the closet has Ruben confiding in Zach
On a whirlwind tour through Europe with an unrelenting schedule and minimal supervision, the two come to rely on each other more and more, and their already close friendship evolves into a romance. But when they decide they’re ready to tell their fans and live freely, Zach and Ruben realize they will never truly have the support they need.
How can they hold tight to each other when their whole world is coming apart?
From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Chart-topping boy band Saturday is setting off on their first European tour and at 17, it’s time for the four boys-Jon, Angel, Ruben, and Zach-to transition their image from «cute» to «hot.» Exerting complete control over this change, their management company forces shy, Catholic Jon to play on sex appeal, while exuberant, party-boy Angel is billed as a clean-cut nice guy, and Ruben, who came out to the band years ago, is forced to remain closeted to fans. However, it isn’t until Zach realizes that he is bisexual and has a crush on Ruben (which is reciprocated) that he feels the full effects of the fan-friendly personas they are all being pressured to maintain. As the tour progresses, it’s only a matter of time before one of the four cracks under the strain. Despite the intensity of their situation, the characters maintain their strong, supportive friendship while encouraging one another to assert themselves and set healthy boundaries when needed. Notably, Jon and Angel-both straight-are shown to have struggles similar to the queer characters when it comes to management’s portrayal of their sexuality. All four boys have involved and supportive parents, making Ruben’s complicated relationship with his emotionally abusive mother especially realistic. The story is equal parts plot and character driven, with racially diverse and well-rounded characters dealing with real teen issues. VERDICT Fun, heartwarming, and a vital purchase for all collections serving teens.-Austin Ferraro, Brambleton Lib./Loudoun County P.L., Brambleton, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.
