Overview

Boyfriends with Girlfriends by Alex Sanchez

Four teens explore the fluidity of love, sexuality, and identity in this acclaimed novel from Alex Sanchez, now in paperback.Sergio is bisexual, but his only real relationship was with a girl. Lance has always known he was gay, but he’s never had a real boyfriend. When the two of them meet, they have an instant connection—but will it be enough to overcome their differences?

Allie’s been in a relationship with a guy for the last two years—but when she meets Kimiko, she can’t get her out of her mind. Does this mean she’s gay? Or bi? Kimiko, falling hard for Allie, is willing to stick around and help Allie figure it out.

Boyfriends with Girlfriends is Alex Sanchez at his best, writing with a sensitive hand to portray four very real teens striving to find their places in the world—and with each other.

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.

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 is biphobic, and Allie is a total weaboo The characters are way to difficult to like or even tolerate sometimes The poorly written relationships were rather annoying The whole thing was like a crappy fanfiction If you're gonna add culturally diverse characters, get it right and don't base them off stereotypes Overall, it wasn't well written and it was a bit insulting not to mention boring

Sweet, light rea with some surprisingly deep thoughts as well. Anyone who has read the Rainbow series knows Alex Sancchez is not the master of detail, but he does know how to write a great story.

This was a quick read but i felt it was missing a bit of something. I didnt find it as enjoyable as his Rainbow Boys series. But overall still a good story.
