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

I'm tempted to tag this book "fantasy" because it takes place in small town where the PFLAG group is bigger than the PTA. It's not like this book pretends homophobia doesn't exist (in fact, one of the main characters has a very hard time with his parents) but it does seem unreal to me. I sort of thought of it as a hopeful vision of the not-so-distant future. Great for LGBTQ teens, or as a Gay Straight Alliance book club pick.

One picky thing about the writing, though: I've read some of Levithan's other books and this is by far the most precious. Some of the narrators poetical musings were hard to swallow (I think the word I'm looking for is "twee"), but to give the author credit, it's probably not far from how a real 15-year-old romantic would express himself.

YA m/m romance in which, well, boy meets boy, boy has some questionable interactions with his ex-boy and so causes new-boy sadly to bolt, then boy makes romantic gestures to get new-boy back. On the surface it sounds…not great, and if it weren’t for the excellent characters that make up boy’s friends and the fun/funny takes on high school vibes, it would have been. But those good things are really good and make it not only a tolerable read, but a good one. I was recommending it to Charlie by describing it as a story that feels like it happens in the halls of Glee’s high school. ( )

This one started slow and went faster as I went. The thing I like about David Leviathan's characters is that they do a lot of interesting and unique things and they're loaded with quirky details. Yes, he created a bit of a gay utopia, but I liked how there's a promise of "Life could be like this." It's nice to see the trans star quarterback also be the homecoming queen. The only thing I wasn't happy with was how things went with Joni. I mean, they didn't end in a total dumpster fire, but they weren't completely resolved and I guess that makes me antsy. ( )

This book is very cute and quirky... perhaps a little too cute and quirky. Or maybe just not my kind of cute and quirky. Think of a cross between Juno, chick-lit, and any movie with Zooey Deschanel in it... that is basically this book. It's like an indie romantic comedy. Except gay. I can appreciate the social and political value of this book, it's certainly a step forward, but it's just not my kind of book. I found it too whimsical and over-the-top, and the angst too manufactured, although there are definitely some very sweet, heartwarming moments. I wanted to like it, but I just don't think Levithan's style is for me. ( )

Not bad. Paul is just a little too saccharin sweet at times and I found some of the side characters more interesting in a lot of ways. Paul's friend Toni standing up to his strict religious parents is a nice defining moment. Joanie needed a dose of reality, but she seemed rather happy with Chuck who comes across as a complete jerk. I would have loved more of Infinite Darlene - the drag queen/football player (she was a hoot).

The reason I put this story in the fantasy section is that Paul, his family and friends live in this little bubble utopia where everyone of all perspectives/orientations/etc. seem to get along with a minimal amount of fuss. No one gets picked on for being out and proud or wearing drag or what-have-you. It's an ideal world which we all wish could exist, but rarely does. Humans just don't operate that way sadly. ( )
