My first novel, about an Armenian boy coming out and falling in love with New York City, the music of Rufus Wainwright and the totally hot skater boy who introduces him to it all,
will be published May 27, 2014!


“Barakiva avoids stereotypes and clichés to create a sweet portrait of nascent adolescent love between two boys growing up and finding themselves (with some help from nearby New York City).” —Publishers Weekly
