I only read the excerpt, all i can say is WOW!! Alex Sanchez sure knows how to make it sound exciting. He knows how to express the character's feelings very well. I can't wait for it to come out so I can read it. I love Alex Sanchez's books. I recommend everyone who supports the LGBT community.

Lance and Sergio are ready for an open relationship that won't shred their hearts, but they each come with emotional baggage and different opinions on sexuality. Lance views bisexuality as a cop-out, so when he finds himself attracted to Sergio who is recovering from an intense relationship with a girl, Lance is unsure if this is a good idea. His best friend Allie is also battling with her own uncertainties between a two-year relationship with a guy and a budding friendship (or is it something more?) with Sergio's best girl friend Kimiko.

I would have to say that Boyfriends With Girlfriends left me with mixed feelings. I left with much thoughts to digest, especially in regard to the honest discussion between Lance and Sergio in regard to the "realness" of bisexuality. Boyfriends With Girlfriends makes for a great read if you are fairly unaware of GLBT and some of the questions/concerns/confusions they face. It paints a fairly positive portrait of supportive parents and friends with a some glimpses of the negative reactions. However, I cannot help but feel the book was a little too simple and straightforward - and I wish that there had been a teeny bit more drama or conflict among the characters.

    cute but ehh

    I enjoyed this as a simple, fun little read, but it wasn't quite the quality that I remembered for Sanchez. This book would be good for an introductory GLBTQ read, for a preteen audience. I'd reccomend reading it in short bursts, as the narrator tends to repeat details from previous chapters in a way that I thought was excessive and annoying. It felt like I was being talked down to at times.
