The Friend Scheme
Part thriller, part romance, The Friend Scheme is another twisty #ownvoices YA novel from Cale Dietrich, author of The Love Interest. High schooler Matt's father is rich, powerful, and seemingly untouchable--a mobster with high hopes that his son will follow in his footsteps.
Matt's older brother Lukas seems poised to do just that, with a bevy of hot girls in tow.
But Matt has other ambitions--and attractions. And attraction sometimes doesn't allow for good judgement.
Matt wouldn't have guessed that Jason, the son of the city's police commissioner, is also carrying a secret.
The boys' connection turns romantic, a first for both.
Now Matt must decide if he can ever do the impossible and come clean about who he really is, and who he is meant to love.
