A curly-haired young man in a striped top leans against a wooden gate, smiling and blushing down at a broad, tan-skinned young man with short hair and wearing a light shirt, who is talking up at him with a smile. The background is mostly sky with a few clouds and some tropical scenery.

A thoughtful and endearing gay YA romance set in a bakery.

Now that high school is over, Ari is dying to move to the big city with his ultra-hip band, if he can just convince his dad to let him quit their struggling family bakery. Though he loved working there as a kid, Ari cannot fathom a life wasting away his days over rising doughs and hot ovens.

But in the midst of interviewing candidates for his replacement, Ari meets Hector, an easy-going guy who loves baking as much as Ari wants to escape it. As they become closer over batches of breads, love begins to bloom . . . that is, if Ari doesn't ruin everything.

Writer Kevin Panetta and artist Savanna Ganucheau concoct a delicious recipe of intricately illustrated baking scenes and blushing young love, where the choices we make can have terrible consequences, but the people who love us can help us grow.
