Atom Heart John Belovedby Luke Hartwell
Rainbow Award winner Atom Heart John Beloved chronicles the lives of two boys who become friends at age thirteen. The story is told by eighteen-year-old John, who quietly whispers to his best friend one night in bed, "Do me." This novel is a breathtaking love story and an intense coming of age story that resembles no other book. John's narrative voice is one of the most unique in gay literature. Atom Heart John Beloved is literate, intimate, erotic, and delightful, delivering unexpected moments of grace.

Quite a ride, no pun intended. Graphic but not vulgar. Youthful sexual zeal meet genuine friendship and love. What a great combination.
The most unusual gay novel and the most unusual coming of age novel I've read in years. I loved it.
