Will, who is handsome, older, and more confident. Gabriel feels a strong pull every time they’re together and thinks about him constantly when they're apart. Could Will ever possibly feel the same way? Is Gabriel willing to do what it takes to find out?
Set against the backdrop of Southern California in 1977, Swell is the story of an all consuming first love and what happens when you’re willing to take a risk.
