Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

Two Boys KissingTwo Boys Kissing by David Levithan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was part of the 2014 Hub Reading Challenge and Stonewall Honor Book. David Levithan is such a good writer and the way he presents Two Boys Kissing is very interesting. He focuses on two boys who were once involved, trying to break the kissing record in the Guiness Book of World Records. He has side stories of two boyfriends and 2 boys who meet at a Gay Prom and a lone boy, Cooper( his online activities been caught by his father)who has run away. Tariq, also has an important presence and part as the one who films (he also creates a playlist that will play the duration of the kiss) the two boys kissing. But even more important are the voices of the gay men from the past who are the omniscient narrators as this story unfolds. Their voices were clear, honest, pained, angry and sad. Their voices will give the reader cause to rejoice and also dash their hopes. A powerful book.
