Sex, for a young boy, is a great discovery. But when a young boy is betrayed by love, sex can become a powerful weapon—especially when used against a married man.
I’m going home and I’m going to tell my father exactly what you did to me.

Set in the Indiana town of the same name, Terre Haute is the story of one very memorable year in the life of Jared McCaverty, who has just discovered sex but has yet to discover what it means. Spoiled by his family’s wealth, Jared is able to live in a world of fantasy—filled with movies, art, and daydreams. But when his thoughts of other boys begin to turn into reality with an older man, Jared comes to realize the implications—the very real perils—of his sexuality.
