Overall this is a pretty good book. Most of the characters seem very real. I really can identify with the main character and his struggles to deal with his sexuality. There were some things about the book that annoyed me. First of all I didn't understand how Aaron could have left Ben like he did. Throughout the novel I found Aaron to be the strong one in there relationship. It didn't make any sense to me that Aaron would really choose to never speak to Ben again after they are caught and humiliated at school. I could be completely missing something but I thought Aaron's actions were out of character. Another thing that bothered me was some of the language in the book. The book was supposed to be set in the Reagan era but some of the language used by the main character sounded like it could have been in the movie Clueless. The last thing that bothered me about this book were the puns. There were too many of them to be dismissed as unintentional. Example: Ben and Aaron often meet in the suply closet at school, during one visit they get in a fight, "Then he ran out of the closet." I didn't find this clever at all. Overall I would like to say I thought this was a good book. I just don't agree with all the other reviews posted. I would recomend it to someone, but it is not the great novel I've heard it to be.

Nothing I write will do this book justice. But, I want everyone to know what a great book they will find in Todd D. Brown's Entries from a Hot Pink Notebook. So, here goes: Entries from a Hot Pink Notebook is a hilarious and compelling work. I haven't laughed out loud while reading any book in quite some time, but parts of Entries are absolutely hilarious and dead-on in the ability to zero in on the way a real adolescent feels. Ben is an engaging narrator as readers peek into his life through the entries in his journal, i.e., the hot pink notebook. The reader is always rooting for him to get a break from all his problems as he tries to navigate through life and love. While the book tackles some really weighty themes, Brown doesn't let more than a few pages pass without injecting another dose of humor that comes at the reader from a totally unexpected direction. And sometimes Brown shocked me with his unerring ability to so perfectly capture the adolescent confusion that is universal regardless of sexual orientation. I often had to stop and recall "I remember that." I guarantee you'll have a hard time getting Ben out of your head after reading Entries. Brown has an excellent talent for inventing believable, vulnerable characters. I am hopeful readers will hear more from Todd D. Brown in the futute- the near future! For now, read this book. If you don't love this work, I feel sorry for you.

This was my first gay novel, as I recently just came out to myself and friends at the age of 20. When i began reading this book I felt like I was the only person in the world who grew up the way I did, meaning confused by my feelings towards other boys my age and dealing with a similiar family as Ben's (main character). Once i began reading this novel I couldn't put it down. I was intrigued by Ben's feelings and how much alike we both felt. I really identified with this novel and would recommend it to anyone. I even referred it to many of my straight friends, a few of which know i am gay. Once you read this coming of age novel about the confusing years of learning one's true self, you may feel let down by other books of the same topic. I applaude Todd Brown, and I hope for his sake that he can write another novel of equal intensity. I will be looking forward to reading more of his work. Buy this book!

This peice by Todd Brown is an exquisitly written book about the struggle of one boy with his sexuality, inner-feelings and very existence. At one point in every person's life, this book will touch the base of some of the struggles you have had or are having. I reccomend this book for 14 year olds and up, because it deals with some difficult and often conterversial issues. This is an essential tool for helping one understand that in each and every endeavor, you are not alone and it may not all turn out to your advantage in the end, but it will eventually come to a conclusion. VERY GOOD WRITING!!!! It is as if he has lived these very adventures.

This book was amazing. I picked it up, expecting it to be nice, fluff reading. I was hooked and couldn't put it down. It was an amazingly realistic portrayal of coming out and adolescence combined. Ben, the main character, was strong and weak, confused and confident, and completely lovable. He was also very good and explaining how he was feeling in a way that reminded me of when I felt that way. I laughed out loud several times even read some of the dialogue to my friends who were sitting near me. I also cried at some of the scenes, and I was sad to see the book end. I wanted to continue to follow Ben through his life.
