What is this book about?

This book has it all: a summer trip to London, LGBTQ romance, oboes!

Marty arrives in London with nothing but his oboe and some savings from his summer job, but he’s excited to start his new life-onlinewhere he’s no longer the closeted, shy kid who slips under the radar and is free to explore his sexuality without his parents’ disapproval.
From the outside, Marty’s life looks like a perfect fantasy: in the span of a few weeks, he’s made new friends, he’s getting closer with his first ever boyfriend, and he’s even traveling around Europe. But Marty knows he can’t keep up the façade. He hasn’t spoken to his parents since he arrived, he’s tearing through his meager savings, his homesickness gets worse and his anxiety flares up, and he hasn’t even come close to landing the job of his dreams. Will Marty be able to find a place that feels like home?
