So now that I have shown you how much of a fangirl I have become let's get on with this review.
Boy Meets Boy takes place in an unnamed utopian town. A place where the LGBT community both young and old live openly with little to no social censure. A town where "P-FLAG is as big a draw as the PTA." Our hero, Paul is a gay teen who has always known who he is and has never doubted it for instant. He knows what he wants out of life and love and he isn't afraid to grab it.
The story is fairly simple. Paul meets Noah at a bookstore concert. They have an instant connection. Unfortunately the joys of first love are quickly put to the test with the re-entrance of a past bi-sexual boyfriend, a gay friend from another town that is struggling with how his parents view his sexualtiy, and a female BFF that is ignoring Paul for her new narrow minded boyfriend that is responsible for cruelly breaking the heart of the transgender star quarterback.
Hey, I told you it was a Utopia of sorts. But it works. It really does. I finished this book feeling upbeat and hopeful which is always a wonderful feeling to have when finishing a book.
Don't grab this book if you are looking for emotional read with high drama. This is a lighter read meant to make you smile, meant to show us how we should and should not be as a society and meant to give a little hope and sunshine to teens out there that struggle everyday with coming out.
