Only On The Weekends by Dean Atta

The Blurb On The Back:

Fifteen-year-old Mack is a hopeless romantic.  He’s had a crush on Karim for what feels like forever, so he can’t believe it when gorgeous, popular Karin seems into him too.

But when Mack’s dad gets a film directing job in Scotland, Mack moves with him, and soon discovers how painful long distance love is.  Love shouldn’t only be on the weekends.  It’s made worse by the fact that Karim can be so hard to read.

Then Mack meets actor Finlay on set and experiences something electric.

Mack never thought he’d find love, but now two boys want him.  How long until his old and new life collide?
