Sam Sylvester's not overly optimistic about their recent move to the small town of Astoria, Oregon after a traumatic experience in their last home in the rural Midwest.
Yet Sam's life seems to be on the upswing after meeting several new friends and a potential love interest in Shep, the pretty neighbor. However, Sam can't seem to let go of what might have been, and is drawn to investigate the death of a teenage boy in 1980s Astoria. Sam's convinced he was murdered--especially since Sam's investigation seems to resurrect some ghosts in the town.
Threatening notes and figures hidden in shadows begin to disrupt Sam's life. Yet Sam continues to search for the truth. When Sam discovers that they may be closer to a killer than previously known, Sam has a difficult decision to make. Would they risk their new life for a half-lived one?
- after I finished Ellen Outside the Lines, I was thinking about what I wanted to read next, and what I really wanted was another queer, autistic character.
- and at first I was sad, because I couldn’t think of any. at least, not any where it is canon that the character is both queer and autistic.
- and THEN I remembered that this book exists!!! and now I’m super excited to read it!!!!
- Ellen Outside the Lines by AJ Sass
- Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
