In the sequel to Openly Straight, Honestly Ben is a perfect book for anyone trying to find their true, honest selves.

Ben Carver is a straight A student, the captain of the school baseball team, recipient of a celebrated award and is well towards his post-secondary goal: leave the family farm for good and become a history professor. Ben has his future figured out, but can’t seem to figure himself out. Rafe broke Ben’s heart last semester and Ben is ready to move on with the gorgeous Hannah, but something is holding him back. Problem: Ben doesn’t know what’s stopping him from falling for the Hannah, the perfect girl for him. Is it Ben’s need to ace school, his want to fulfill his father’s expectations, Ben’s baseball teammates, or a certain boy that just won’t exit Ben’s life?
