Boy Meets Boy has a very rich and diverse cast of characters and that was what I liked the most. My favourite character is Tony because I feel that he is missing most of the time but when he finally opens up to Paul (I live their friendship) he manages to take things slowly instead of giving up altogether. I admire his courage.
I also wish I could know more about Noah because he seems to be a very interesting character that could have been more explored.

“I could point out that it isn't always easy knowing who you are and what you want, because then you have no excuse for not trying to get it.”

“I find my greatest strength in wanting to be strong. I find my greatest bravery in deciding to be brave. I don't know if I've ever realised it before,[...] I think we both realise it now. If there's no feeling of fear, then there's no need for courage.” ( )

Paul is a sophomore in high school, but it's not a high school like one you'll probably see anywhere. From the drag queen quarterback who is also the homecoming queen to the cheerleaders who ride on Harleys to the quiz bowling team that competes in competitions where they bowl while yelling out trivia answers, this school is far from typical. And when Paul meets Noah, he suddenly feels out of his element - he knows he likes Noah but just isn't sure how to make a move, especially when he can't seem to find him again at school.

Honestly, I thought this was a cute story, but it was also one with which I had difficulty to engage. The town and the school are so obviously fictional that it was hard to take the story seriously. I almost found myself tagging this with 'fantasy' for that very reason. But if you can look past that, there is a complicated story of young romance here that is worth a read. ( )

I want to live in the town this book was set in, go to this high school, be friends with these kids and especially live my life always knowing Infinite Darlene and all her wonder. Sigh. This book made me happy. So so happy. ( )

It's a good story but as an adult, it's very junior high. It does read much better than the audio book. ( )

“I find my greatest strength in wanting to be strong. I find my greatest bravery in wanting to be brave […] If there’s no feeling of fear, then there’s no need for courage.”

I enjoyed Boy Meets Boy. It’s short, sweet, funny, and very touching. David Levithan is great at painting characters so well and making you feel like you truly know them with nothing more than a few lines of dialogue. It’s quick witted and relatable. The world that’s painted in Boy Meets Boy is exactly how I wish my high school years were – LGBT kids growing up in a close knit and supportive community, a town where homophobia seems to blissfully be a thing of the past. It’s a great form of escapism from reality, but in the end, it's hard not to see it as something that's all a little too good to be true.

My favourite thing about Boy Meets Boy was the side characters and the friendships. Paul’s friendship with his best friend Tony is so precious and caring and I loved them more than anything else. Tony as a character was perhaps my favourite, I (like Paul) felt an immense need to protect him and help him seek happiness and freedom from his exhausting parents. I loved his quiet companionship with Paul, their secret language and the support they gave each other. Another character who made this book for me was Infinite Darlene, the star quarterback/homecoming queen - she’s hilarious and perfect.

On the other end we have Joni, Paul’s other best friend who honestly… She’s easily dislikeable. Despite both her best friends being gay, she continuously falls for grossly homophobic guys and pushes her friends aside for her boyfriend’s wants and attention. I found it nearly impossible to sympathize with her in any way (I would be angry with her too, Paul).

What honestly let down Boy Meets Boy a little bit was the strange love triangle. I am not the biggest fan of love triangles, I find them played out, but I’m usually more tolerant when it comes to love triangles in LGBT fiction. This was a strange one however, I was super torn and felt a little all over the place especially considering Paul’s main love interest Noah has only been around for like 2 weeks. They were cute, but I did find it hard to get invested in such an insta-love relationship and feel like this was True Love after such a short time. I found myself a lot more interested in Paul’s friendships and the other characters than his romantic relationships.

Boy Meets Boy was a quick, cute, funny (if a little unbelievable at times) read. Even though I wasn’t too emotionally attached to the relationship, what really made it for me was Paul’s friendships, particularly with his best friend Tony. They had such a touching friendship and Tony’s side story and development was definitely what I was most invested in, and ultimately was what made me enjoy this Boy Meets Boy.
