Kevin McCollum is a high school junior with the usual things on his mind: getting good grades, having fun, and finding a boyfriend. On a warm afternoon, while studying in Central Park, Kevin notices a guy practicing parkour—jumping on rocks, running up trees, doing flips. Kevin’s a fan of the sport, and many of the hot guys he’s seen do it on TV. After watching “parkour guy” for several days, Kevin is surprised when Shin comes over to introduce himself. As the two begin dating, cultures clash when Shin’s parents reveal their expectations that he date only Japanese boys. Pressures mount and Kevin isn’t sure how he can fight to keep Shin when the opposition are his parents and traditions. Is their twenty-first century love doomed before it even truly begins?
