Jay Bell’s Something Like Summer was one of the first gay fiction books I read.

I didn’t know I was interested in reading gay coming out/romance novels until I discovered Something Like Summer in 2012. Since then I’ve read a bunch of others including Jay Bell’s “Something Like” sequels as well as books like Bear, Otter, and the Kid, The Race For Second, Straight, and True Letters from a Fictional Life.

Now Something Like Summer has been adapted into a movie! It’s currently on the film festival circuit, and over the weekend the first trailer was released.

The movie looks really cute and loyal to the source material. Based on what we see in this trailer, the movie’ll please fans of the book. Personally I can’t wait to see it.
