“Intimate, feel-good and quick-fire” Guardian
“Funny and clever and touching” Telegraph
“This is gay life, not as we know it, but as we wish it was when we were 15.” Time Out
“Levithan has created a scrumptious new sub-genre; teen literature where sexuality isn’t treated as a problem and isn’t a coming out story. An immensely likeable read.” Gay Times
Love meets love. Confusion meets clarity. Boy meets boy. "There isn't really a gay scene or a straight scene in our town. They all got mixed up a while back, which I think is for the best! And whether your heart is strictly ballroom or bluegrass punk, the dance floors are open to whatever you have to offer. This is my town." Meet Paul. Gay his whole life, and finding love as wonderful, confusing and heartbreaking as every other teenager in his high school. Meet Paul's friends: Joni - his best friend, who may not be his best friend any more; Tony - his other best friend who can't leave the house unless his parents think he's going on a date! with a girl; Infinite Darlene - homecoming queen and star quarterback in the football team; Kyle - the ex-boyfriend who won't go away; Rip - the school bookie who sets the odds; And Noah - the boy who changes everything. Witty, engaging, refreshingly upbeat and slightly surreal, David Levithan's debut has been attracting glowing reviews in the USA. After all, being in love at high school is a challenge for any teen - regardless of sexual preference!
