Amazon Review

In Doing It Melvin Burgess has written what is potentially the most controversial young adult novel ever. It's an honest and funny book about three teenage British boys learning about themselves and life through their sexual experiences. But here's the catch: the story is told from the point of view of the hormone-sodden young males, naughty bits and all.

Gorgeous Dino thinks that equally gorgeous Allie should realise that they belong together and is puzzled and frustrated when their passionate lovemaking always ends with her refusing him. Jonathan fancies sensible, sexy Deborah but can't admit it to his friends, even after several steamy grope sessions, because she is…well…plump. And Ben is living every teenage boy's dream, an affair with a lusty teacher--but somehow it's getting to be too much of a good thing. Nearly all young adult novels about love and sexuality are told by and for girls: the perspective of this book will be educational for female readers. --Patty Campbell, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"What's invaluable is the sneak peek we get into how guys' self-obsessed minds work. (And thankfully--beneath the smut--they actually do have feelings.)"--"Seventeen""" "The funniest young adult book I've read in a long time. Fresh, honest, and totally hilarious."--"Alloy.com""""As a card-carrying boy, I appreciate the male P.O.V. of this novel, so kudos to Burgess for exploring a sensitive subject in an honest way."--"Elle Girl " --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description
