This is the first book I have ever read that was about a gay boy my age. I had NEVER liked to read, but this book caught my attention. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down!!!! This book is amazing, and honestly changed my life and left me reflecting on it for days after. Not only that, but after reading, i emailed the author, Martin Wilson, we have since exchanged a bunch of emails and he even sent me a signed copy of his book! He is a great guy and he has told a wonderful story! Please, if you only ever read one book, let it be this one.

Hate it!

This book is the most horrid book I have ever read in my intire life. I did not enjoy it one bit. You should not ever lay hands upon it.

    Fantastic

    Alex and James are both character with a lot of depth. You really feel a connection to them. Definitely worth the read.

    amzing connection to the reader

    it was a very good book. I was happy that unlike many of the other books dealing with gay characters, this book does not go into detail about their sexual activities. its a very good to to understand how a person can come into their own self by just finding their sexuality. two thumbs up

    Very good.

    I bought this book at a local used book store and I read the first few pages on the way home. I immediately took the bookmark out of the book I was already reading and began to read this novel. It was very realistic and edgy. I never wanted to put this book down. Every teenager should definitely read this.
