TWO NAKED GUYS KISSING
When The Doctor asks, you don't refuse. When shared with the right person, they had the power of confirmation, the force of destiny. I remember seeing the cover, and title of this and thinking about the fact that this is a YA book, and the potential for it being too simplified, too trying-too-hard, too trendy, maybe.
- The plot was unique as all get out, and the characters were vivid, complex, real, and so likeable. Dec 02, Lola Reviewer rated it it was amazing Shelves:
- Some are still in the closet, and their stories were hard to hear. What an unfortunate cover and title for this fabulously original book.
- Naysayers might complain that the language is a little pretentious, precious, or preachy, but to me it was absorbing and added to rather than subtracted from the story.
- This is a problem so many gay teens face today: One of the concerns is the cover, the other is the fact that teens may be bullied for checking it out, and of course there is the issue of the book being about gay teens.
I seriously cannot wait to share this book with others. I felt the same while reading Falling into Place a quite interesting book! The cover and the title pretty much say it all. It deals with the past and present.
DESCRIPTION: They have a crowd that grows, including a group of protesters who I worried would wreak havoc. Harry Ramirez is out, his parents are very supportive.
It can also depend on the degree of connection and reliability you feel toward those characters in question. And the fact of the matter is, they are. I have no words! I surprised myself, by loving every single character David Levithan placed forward, each and every single one of them felt genuine. By the simple, complicated fact of who you were.
It felt like the characters were vehicles for the deeper messages and the Greek chorus of dead men method of narration as opposed to actual, breathing people.
Then there are the pink-haired boy, Avery, and the blue-haired boy, Ryan, who hit it off at a gay prom. All along, you've used the first sentence as a lock. It is enough to start the telling. Two Boys Kissing has officially cemented my love, appreciation, and respect for David Levithan.

Levithan paints a pretty complex picture of what it is to be gay these days well, the story is set in the , especially for those living in a small town. What I like most about David Levithan and what makes me want to check out his books every time - even when some didn't work for me in the past - is his experimental style. Este libro es un muegano de voces y emociones. He will never have to come out because he will never have been kept in. The saddest and most heartwrenching story is that of Cooper, who is in the closet, spends numerous hours trawling the Internet and the sex apps, pretending to be different people - characters, messing with people. I found myself almost sick to my stomach with worry, as each of them go through their personal hell in trying to pull this off—leg pain, pee, dehydration, total fatigue, mental distress. Everything about this novel was authentic and moving.
So I challenge you to go out on a limb, and pick up this book, the writing is beautiful and evokes emotion. Another perspective, depicting the fear of opening yourself up to your parents, and the everlasting fear of how they may react. Uh oh here it comes
But it should take much, much less than that. The "voice" of the AIDs victims was exhausting and sometimes stopped me from fully engaging with the individual stories, especially when the novelty factor ran out. Sometimes experimental styles get it just right - as I believe Levithan did with The Lover's Dictionary - but this one wasn't doing it for me.

I like the beating! I like when she gets hit over the shoulder!
Boots and innocent looking boys
This is truly one sadistic woman! anybody that visits her should be very aware of what they are getting into! But I do love this intimidating woman! I sometimes wonder what her home life is like! Is she submissive in her private life?
greedy cunt i say.
I love vintage films. Often better than current ones. Too bad I have a slow connection and the picture quality is poor. :(
