""You have to read this." "
- Rainbow Rowell, author of "Eleanor & Park"
In his follow-up to the "New York Times" bestselling" Every Day, " David Levithan, coauthor of bestsellers "Will Grayson, Will Grayson "and" Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, " crafts a novel that the "Los Angeles Times" calls "open, frank, and ultimately optimistic."
Based on true events--and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS--"Two Boys Kissing" follows Harry and Craig, two seventeen-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity, and belonging.
