Review: Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

Monday, May 25, 2015
Why I Chose this Book:
This was another book I was required to read for my YAL grad class, and I will be honest... I wasn't too sure about starting it. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Levithan's writing. The Lover's Dictionary is one of my favorite books, but I never really gave LGBTQ+ books a chance because they never really appealed to me, part of the reason being that contemporary is not really my thing either, but I can't begin to say how glad I am that I read this book and how much I truly enjoyed and cried over the hurt and pain of these characters.

Synopsis:
New York Times bestselling author David Levithan tells the based-on-true-events story of Harry and Craig, two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record--all of which is narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS.

While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teen boys dealing with languishing long-term relationships, coming out, navigating gender identity, and falling deeper into the digital rabbit hole of gay hookup sites--all while the kissing former couple tries to figure out their own feelings for each other.
