5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, Fun, Loved-It., 25 May 2008
This review is from: Geography Club (Paperback)
I got this book for my 20th birthday, I'd read a few reviews that said this was for younger people but I still wanted to read it. I must say that I enjoyed it from start to cover. I read this book in less than two days.
Russell (lead character) knows he's gay but feels like he has no-one to relate to, or talk to about it. He confides all his secrets into people that he meets in internet chatrooms. Like most evenings Russell spends the night talking to other gay people in these chatrooms, until he stumbles across a chatroom for the small town where he lives. He genuinely does believe that he is the only gay person in the town, but unknown to him at the time; the other gay person in this chatroom is only the most popular, well-liked jock in the whole school.
They agree to meet at the swampy, stinky, picnic gazebo, and can't believe who it is that they're meeting.
After a few times of meeting, sharing secrets and a few intimate moments, they embark on a really romantic (if secret) romance.
I may be 20 but I couldn't put this book down from the moment I got it, as young and naive as it is, it's a fantastic read regardless of how young or old you happen to be.
Just buy it, you won't regret it.
