Pedro and Daniel are Mexican American brothers growing up in 1970s Ohio. Their mother resents that Pedro is a spitting image of their darker-skinned father; that Daniel likes dolls; that neither boy plays sports. Both boys are gay and neurodivergent, but they are dissimilar in their struggles, their dreams, and their approach to life.

Pedro & Daniel is a deeply personal novel that spans from the boy’s early childhood until they are young men. Together, they find joy and laughter as they endure abuses, coming out, first loves, first jobs, and the AIDS pandemic, in a coming-of-age story unlike any other.
