Going off to boarding school can be a difficult experience for any teenager. Naturally I spent the first few days searching for a friend. I found one, but soon I realized that I loved him. I loved his eyes, his smile, his attitude, and his background. The problem was, he was completly and utterly straight. 

This book tracks our four years at a high school of 40 students trying to get along and work through our difficult relationship. Our story is organized in short stories that depict the most important moments of our friendship. I try to show the lust, anger, love, sadness, confusion and many other emotions associated with unrequited love. 

This story contains only two characters both of which remained unamed. Rollercoaster is a coming of age story as much as it is a love story. I hope you will join me as I recount all the twists and tunrs of our adventure and follow me along for the ride of a lifetime that can only be described as a rollercoaster.
