TWO BOYS KISSING
Thought provoking, poignant and beautifully written, above all this is an unbelievably important book for anyone who has struggled with identity, love and loss. The omniscient narration is incredibly moving and appreciative of the fragility of life. A groundbreaking addition to the LGBT genre and community.
Different boys, different towns. Craig and Harry aren’t a couple anymore, but their goal is to break the world record for longest kiss. Peter and Neil are a couple. Avery and Ryan are figuring out what it means to be a couple. Cooper is out, rejected and desperately alone. Their stories are told through the generations of those before them who died for the love that binds them together. (KNOPF, Sep., 208 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9780307931900, HC, 13 & Up)
