Exchange Of Hearts is a wonderful coming of age story. Harrison and Levi meet while Levi's in Australia for three months of a student exchange program. Harrison's struggling as he doesn't want to follow the path his father has set out for him; he wants to be a musician, not a doctor. As the two young men are set up as roommates, Harrison is shocked by how open and accepting Levi is. He's also surprised by the fact that Levi is openly gay and secure in his sexuality.
What follows is a beautiful and tender tale of Levi trying to help Harrison stand up to his dad. The two form a strong bond as Levi wants to help Harrison to be the man he wants to be. They know they won't be together long, but their friendship is strong, important and supportive. This story delves into many of the tough issues that arise when a young man can't accept his sexuality, and needs to learn to be confident in himself.
