Bruce Dane’s loss of a brother to suicide in high school inspired Why Can’t Billy Idol Love Me? Though the book is Young Adult fiction, it is based on his own real-life experiences, and conflicts facing young people world-wide on a daily basis. This book is for them.

As a volunteer for the Trevor Project —the 24-hour anti-suicide hotline specifically for LGBTQ youth—he learned that a teen’s life can hinge on finding someone they can trust to talk to.
