YA Crossover / New Adult

The Hidden Variable

By Gali Weinreb

Ages 4+


How I came to be cover2.jpg

Written by Shoham Smith, Illustrated by Noam Weiner

HOW I CAME TO BE is a totally different type of "where do babies come from?" book. The book is not designed to be read in one sitting, but rather lets parents choose the sections that are most relevant for their child's stage of development. Filled with humor and empathy, it even tackles subjects like IVF and sperm donations.
Written by one of Israel's premiere children's books authors, Shoham Smith, with the consultation of child psychologist Ruti Ben-Porat, and with engaging illustrations by Noam Weiner, the book is told from the perspective of a baby at a press conference.

The Hidden Variable.jpg

What if you found your soul mate, but they were the wrong sex for you?

Yami and Shatz arrive to their first year of college from opposite sides of the proverbial tracks. Their unlikely meeting happens at a prestigious interdisciplinary program for gifted students.

Yami is the golden boy, from a loving, well-off family, brimming with enthusiasm for scientific breakthroughs and life. Shatz, dark, brooding and unbelievably beautiful, arrives saddled with years of neglect, struggling to build self-confidence to match his academic brilliance.

Together with a group of new friends, they revel in academic and philosophical discovery, while trying to navigate academic politics and find their voice.  But when their closeness deepens, each of them must face tough questions: Is it possible to fall in love with someone even though it goes against your sexual orientation?  What sacrifice can you ask of the person you love?


THE HIDDEN VARIABLE is not the gay Love Hypothesis. While it pulls readers into a gripping tale of gay romance and sex, it touches on deeper questions of sexual orientation, the inherent impact of socioeconomic inequality, complex family dynamics and more. The result is a book that’s both a great read, but also controversial and thought provoking.
