Jesse Minkin is a study-mad Harvard hopeful. Anything that could possibly distract him from this goal is just petty teenage drama to him, including romance. His two best friends since childhood—the popular jock and the intimidating bad boy—have created the perfect shield for him, behind which he can safely practice his nerdy ways without harassment from bullies. However, when he meets the openly gay target of a violent hate crime, Jesse begins to see beyond his textbooks; perhaps there’s educational merit in petty teenage drama after all, and not all learning leads to Harvard.

Being one of the highest ranking members of an anti-terrorist organization called Luxarx, Kaleth assumes he knows everything there is to know about the organization, and their most prominent foe, the Umbra.
He is proven wrong, however, after a chance encounter with one of their supposed enemies. The Umbra in question isn’t violent or threatening—he’s just scared. And he makes Kaleth start to question everything he has been told by his superiors.
Kaleth decides to investigate this oddity, but to get to the bottom of this, he needs help from someone outside of the organization—he doesn’t trust the agents outside of his team not to betray him. Enter Nef, a brother of one of Kaleth’s coworkers, who knows his way around computer security—something Kaleth sorely needs to be able to break into Luxarx’s most secret database.
But instead of simply finding out what is going on at Luxarx, Kaleth ends up discovering an ancient secret involving his country, his government, and even his own existence.
One hundred percent made in China, Nick (Yu) grew up in an environment where being gay was not an option. The expectation from his parents and pressure from the society molded him into the “best student” and “best employee.” He made his family proud. But deep inside, he knew that something was missing, and he was different.
In this memoir, Nick (Yu) takes readers on his journey from growing up as a confused “straight” boy from China to today having a lovely husband and three girls through surrogacy. He invites readers to the experiences that he would rather have forgotten – from being sexually harassed by his desk-mate in middle school, through depression and a one-night stand in college, to losing a baby during pregnancy.
With ultimate honesty and absolute vulnerability, Nick shares the happiness and sadness on the journey to come out to himself, his parents and friends; learn about gay culture in America, cherish his Chinese heritage, find his first love, and create a family through surrogacy and the help of many amazing people.

It’s also a story very much of our time, when the issues of immigration and gay marriage/family life still roil society. You won’t forget Two Dads and Three Girls.” – Margaret Diehl
