Tyler Oakley couldn't be more popular. Football captain and quarterback of St Jude's high award winning team, openly gay and the sweetest guy you will ever meet.
Troye Sivan Mellet..well, he's a different story. A face more perforated than a siv, he's pierced and made up all in black, the scent of cheap cigarette smoke and polo red are synonymous with him. His somewhat 'intimidating' fashion sense is not why people hate him though, oh no. They hate him because he is the very definition of the word asshole. He bullies anyone he can get his claws into. He selects his victims on a weekly basis, making their lives a living hell before moving onto his next chosen victim the next week over.
But there's more than meets the eye when it comes to the homophobic Aussie lad. And after a decidedly traumatic occurrence, Tyler can't help but want to know Troye, even if Troye is insistent of being left alone and hated.
