Title: Boy Meets Boy
Author: David Levithan
Year Published: 2005
Synopsis: This is the story of Paul, a sophomore at a high school like no other: The cheerleaders ride Harleys, the homecoming queen used to be a guy named Daryl (she now prefers Infinite Darlene and is also the star quarterback), and the gay-straight alliance was formed to help the straight kids learn how to dance.
When Paul meets Noah, he thinks he’s found the one his heart is made for. Until he blows it. The school bookie says the odds are 12-to-1 against him getting Noah back, but Paul’s not giving up without playing his love really loud. His best friend Joni might be drifting away, his other best friend Tony might be dealing with ultra-religious parents, and his ex-boyfriend Kyle might not be going away anytime soon, but sometimes everything needs to fall apart before it can really fit together right.
This is a happy-meaningful romantic comedy about finding love, losing love, and doing what it takes to get love back in a crazy-wonderful world.
Why?: I have loved everything I have read by David Levithan. I just finished Two Boys Kissing and I purchased this book for kindle a while ago so I am excited to finally read it.
Expectations: I expect unique characters that feel real. I also expect to become emotionally invested in this book. This was Levithan's first book so it may not be as fledged out as his recent books.
Judging a book by its cover: It is simple. I like it.
