With all of his success on television and in design, it was surprising to see Sumerlis to try his hand at writing. He definitely didn’t need to do it, but readers were glad he did as The Dangerous Art of Blending In was one of the most powerful books written in 2018.

The book follows the story of a 17-year old immigrant named Evan Panos and his struggles with his family and his love life. His mother is strict and views him as a disappointment while his father is a workaholic who avoids conflict at all costs. Evan is lucky to have his best friend Henry to keep him positive, but his feelings towards Henry prove distracting as he finds him more and more attractive as the days go by. Evan will struggle with his mother’s abuse and find solace in Henry, while learning to find his own voice in a world where he always remained silent to get by.
