Robbie Rogers' memoir does a good job of outlining the toxic effects of internalized homophobia. Rogers lived an apparently charmed life (loving family, dedication and drive, extraordinary ability, good looks) but beneath the surface was the big secret - one he could barely even admit to himself. It's an engaging read, not least because Rogers is so likeable.
