This book was a GREAT read!! I absolutely loved it. It's about a boy named David, trying to come to terms with who he is and who others want him to be. It's definitely moving and the overall internal struggle David is having with himself is something young people struggling with the same issue can relate to. In true "Anonymous" style, this book doesn't have the happiest ending but it wasn't tragic either, which I was happy about because I liked the main character. This book is a MUST!

There is honestly no way to describe the sheer wonder and awesomeness of this book. It does such a great job of portraying the inner battle within a large part of the world. I know the battle that the main character went through and seeing it put onto paper with such finesse and beauty moved me to tears at multiple times throughout the book. The topics discussed in this novel are topics that need to be discussed more than they are. I strongly strongly strongly reccommend reading this book. It may help you in certain aspects and it may help others realize certain things about certain people. This book has so much worth. If people could only see things from the main characters perspective and feel what he felt. Things might not be the way they are in the world. In a positive way. I give this book six stars because it goes beyond perfection. It is my new favorite book of all time. Read this book amd you will not regret it. -Jacob :3

I hate to begin and say that David’s life was perfect because in doing so, none of what I read would have transpired. In reality, David had an ideal life and had it not been for his English Literature class, David’s life might have turned out differently but fate was in the cards and this class opened his eyes. David, a football starter with a cheerleader girlfriend, sitting with great grades and lots of friends needs to journal three days a week for his literature class which seems easy when the topics are so simple but when a new student arrives in class, David finds himself journaling more. David did a wonderful job keeping up on his journal, talking about hanging out with his girlfriend Monica and his best friend Tyler, giving details about the parties, the football games and his family. It was Jon who blew up the pages of his journal. This new student in his literature class had an electrifying effect on him instantly, as he borrows a pen from him. He finds himself staring at him repeatedly; a dude ….he’s checking out a dude, what is happening to him. Jon then becomes David’s tutor in English and David’s best friend starts in on the crude comments. David doesn’t know where his feelings belong, he doesn’t want anyone to know he has a strong attraction for a guy, his dad would kill him and he also needs a football scholarship to go to college so he needs to be a careful but what he feels, feels so right. He’s never had these feelings before with anyone, what if it’s true and he likes guys? Reading his journal, I’m eager to know what’s happening on the days that David’s not journaling as I know I have missed something important, some thought, some events that’s occurred. I’m extremely nervous as he’s writing so honestly and writing down so much information, I’m afraid of the safety of the journal. I wanted to throw it in the fire each time he got done writing as I am afraid someone would see it and life as he knows it would cease to exist. Then I wondered, perhaps that might be the ticket. Maybe this is the way people find out how he feels, is by reading his journal but it’s so personal and so private, oh…I’m so torn. Football, girlfriends, and school continue as David gets to know Jon and the two of them discover things about themselves. I was surprised at the friendships in this book and the family dynamics by the time I finally close the book. By the second half of the book, I couldn’t put the book down and things just escalated. It’s another terrific book by Anonymous.

i happened to find this book when I went into a B&N bookstore.  I was just browsing around and notice the cover because I've read "Go Ask Alice" before.  I picked it up and just the book excerpt and I was tempted to get it.  i did not get it that day but purchased it a few days ago.  I got it in the mail yesterday morning and I just finished it THIS MORNING!  I honestly couldn't put it down.  I could've finished it if I decided not to sleep. lol.  But this book was seriously amazing.  The narrative was great and the story was fascinating.  I had total sympathy for the main character during the ending of the book.  I really appreciated the way the book captured the character's feelings towards the other character.  It was a bittersweet story, but it gives hope at the end.  It's definitely worth reading!
