#BookReview for Deposing Nathan by @zack_smedley

Synopsis: For sixteen years, Nate was the perfect son—the product of a no-nonsense upbringing and deep spiritual faith. 

Then he met Cam, who pushed him to break rules, dream, and accept himself. Conflicted, Nate began to push back. 

With each push, the boys became more entangled in each others’ worlds...but they also spiraled closer to their breaking points. And now all of it has fallen apart after a fistfight-turned-near-fatal-incident—one that’s left Nate with a stab wound and Cam in jail.

Now Nate is being ordered to give a statement, under oath, that will send his best friend to prison. 

The problem is, the real story of what happened between them isn’t as simple as anyone thinks. 

With all eyes on him, Nate must make his confessions about what led up to that night with Cam…and in doing so, risk tearing both of their lives apart.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: My biggest issue with this one was the number of curse words that it has.  I think that could have been toned down a bunch and it was truly unneeded. I will say that I liked the characters enough and the story was good.  But the cursing could have been taking down a lot.  The story itself flowed well and this book made me cry many times.

This book covers sexuality, religion, and friendship in a way that makes it flourish.

The timeline jumps were done very well as well and I was never wondering what was going on.

Go Into This One Knowing: Lots of Curse words, Bisexuality, sexuality, religion, and friendship
