What is this book about?

The perfect summer friendship story, starring four queer boys with big hearts and even bigger dreams.

Call them the Four Musketeers. Sal, Gabriel, Reese, and Heath have been best friends since preschool. Now in high school, all four are openly gay. Reese and Heath are single (though they are in love with each other but afraid to tell the other so), while Sal and Gabriel are friends with benefits.

It’s summer vacation time now, and all four are going their separate ways: Sal to a congressional internship in Washington, D.C.; Gabriel to Boston to work for a nonprofit; Reese to Paris to study fashion design; and Heath is going to Florida to work for his aunt in her arcade.
What will this summer of new experiences and world-expanding travel mean for each of them—and for their friendship?
