"You have to read this.” —Rainbow Rowell, bestselling author of Eleanor & Park
In his follow-up to tthe New York Times bestselling author of Every Day, andDavid Levithan, coauthor of bestsellers Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green) and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn), crafts a novel that the Los Angeles Times calls “open, frank, and ultimately optimistic.”
Based on true events—and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS—Two Boys Kissing follows Harry and Craig, two seventeen-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity, and belonging.

Looks very good
This may be perhaps the most moving novel I've ever read. A job well done by David Levithan for creating this beautiful novel. Absolutely love the perspective throughout the novel of the past generation; it gave me so much clarity about my own life and even my generation itself.
Thank you, David Levithan, for making me feel human.
