Boy Meets Boy

Boy Meets Boy - David Levithan Early on, particularly in the first chapter or two, I was worried I'd be really disappointed in this novel. It seemed over the top, too idealistic; no US suburb would ever actually be this open-minded as a whole or have so much (open) sexual diversity. BUT as I kept reading I found that it became more believable and simultaneously less ridiculous. I really liked the story; there are some really truthful and believeable high-school-life relationships and issues in here and I think any teen (or adult, really) reading it could definitely relate. I was rooting for the characters 100% and am glad I trudged on past the first few chapters. Also, this would make a GREAT, and I think very commercially successful, movie. Mr. Levithan did alright with Nick and Norah's, I'd be stoked to see a film adaptation of this one too.
