    2. David Levithan has just become my new coup de c ur author Every time I will find my heart aching for an LGBT book or a meaningful read, it s in his works that I will look forward to plunge myself And there are so many books of his that I have not had the occasion to devour yet Yet.It s with a lingering sensation that I turned the last page While this may be the kind of story that needs a certain conclusion to its plot and you can feel it , I didn t want to let go of the endearing, realistic and [...]

    3. This small little 196 page book packs of a punch that some 800 page puppy squishers that I ve read Just beautiful.Freedom is also about what you will allow yourself to do.Craig and Henry they are the two boys kissing Going for the world s record longest kiss Peter and Neil already a coupleAvery and Ryan new to a relationship and trying to make their wayAnd Cooper who feels so lostTariq My favorite character in the whole book.Just read this book The first sentence of the truth is always the hard [...]

    4. Actual rating is 4.5 stars We gather the things we learned, and they don t nearly add up to fill the space of a life You will miss the taste of Froot Loops You will miss the sound of traffic You will miss your back against his You will miss him stealing the sheets Do not ignore these things This review is not really a review concerning the book s merits so much as me rambling about how important I feel this book is for gay teens My apologies.Two Boys Kissing has officially cemented my love, appr [...]

    5. We think of the boys we kissed, the boys we screwed, the boys we loved, the boys who didn t love us back, the boys who were with us at the end, the boys who were with us beyond the end Love is so painful, how could you ever wish it on anybody And love is so essential, how could you ever stand in its way The GoodThis kind of book is still very much needed What the blurb doesn t tell you is that this feels like several short stories woven into one, all of them surrounding the theme of gay teenage [...]

    6. Cross posted at Shelf Inflicted and at Outlaw Reviews Don t let the provocative cover stop you from picking up this book It is about two boys, Craig and Harry, who are still good friends, but no longer together, locking lips to break the world s record for the longest kiss Enough time had gone by that when they started kissing again, the electricity was gone, replaced by something closer to architecture They were kissing with a purpose, but the purpose wasn t them it was the kiss itself They wer [...]

    7. 5 poignant, wise, profound stars This is a YA masterpiece I am so immensely moved by this novel If you know a gay youthbuy this for him and kiss him and let him know that you care If you want to understand what it means to be a gay youth read this book yourself and allow your heart to open, swell and if its like mine will explode with sadness, gladness, thankfulness and hope These are such genuine stories of a variety of young gay men living their lives, loving their loves and struggling against [...]

    10. Things are not magical because they ve been conjured for us by some outside force They are magical because we create them At first I struggled to get into this and I put it down twice before it kept me reading The most irritating thing about it, and the only thing that bothered me, was the first person plural narrative It somehow made everything nostalgic and sentimental, which pulled me down at first Another thing I struggled with were the many main characters I think the thing I liked the most [...]

    11. I just want to say that Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan was possibly the most beautiful book I ve ever read I can t describe to you the feelings it gives but I can tell you that it will open your eyes dramatically This book will change you for the better after reading it Causing you to be aware, cautious, caring, and loving to everyone around you I seriously cannot wait to share this book with others.

    12. Pogo Stick Time Well, I m bouncing high on my pogo stick again Wowser Is this ever fun If it hadn t been for a couple of friends who went cuckoo over this book, I never in a million years would have picked it up First, it s YA I do like some YA, but if you line up some fiction titles, I ll almost always choose the literary or contemporary books Often the language in YA novels is just so plain And if it s topical, it runs the risk of being a message book that s pushing its agenda in all caps.Seco [...]

    13. I d give this book a standing ovation if I could Absolutely beautiful, life affirming, and a story so needed amidst today s changing viewpoints on LGBT rights.The cover and the title pretty much say it all Two Boys Kissing runs the gamut of eight main characters ex boyfriends Craig and Harry aiming to break the Guinness World Record for longest kiss Tariq, quasi inspiration of the big kiss after getting beaten up by haters and staunch supporter of their challenge steady couple Neil and Peter pin [...]

    14. OMG OMG OMG This book How do I convey how good this book is, when I m shouting expletives in my head the kinds that express incredulity at having one s mind blown away I m also very sleep deprived, thanks to staying up late to finish it So, bear with me.I was browsing through 700 books on my Kindle, to see if anything jumps at me, hoping for a book that wasn t blah Honestly, I couldn t remember why I bought this book, especially since I had been thinking I ve about had enough of reading books ab [...]

    15. Don t be put off by the blurb and the kind of silly sounding story of two kids trying to break a world kissing record barf ad that s like saying Great Expectations is about a woman who s ruined a wedding cake it s so much than the initial premise.The two boys who are attempting the world record for kissing are the lynchpins of the story and the way that Harry and Craig communicate and support each other throughout their marathon is really touching The reactions of the people around them was bot [...]

    16. Two Boys Kissing is a powerful read The story encompasses several stories of the struggles of what it means to be a gay youth all the while describing the joy and pain of trying to break the world s record for the longest kiss Was that a run on sentence I feel a little overwhelmed from just finishing this deeply emotional book cleansing breath First of all, I m delighted that this is a YA novel I feel that it s a must read for every age, but the fact that it s shelved in the YA section warms my [...]

    17. I definitely enjoyed this book especially because I think it s message and relevance is profound.It was nice to read a book with so many gay characters instead of a gay character lazily shoved into a young adult book for the sake of diversity.This book deals with many important issues regarding sexuality like coming out and feeling comfortable with your own sexuality.However, I think the story telling was poor and I felt parts of the book were overly dramatic and took away from the story.At time [...]

    18. When The Doctor asks, you don t refuse After Finishing3.5 StarsTwo Boys Kissing is not only a book about two boys It follows the life of a long time couple, a broken up couple, a new couple, and a boy searching to be part of a couple Watching over these boys are the lost ones The people we have lost from disease and suicide, the ones who look at these boys with both worry and envy, the ones of a lost generation of gay teenagers not unlike the ones we re reading about now I was looking forward to [...]

    19. Eu posso dizer com certeza que chorei do inicio ao fim desse livro Ainda bem q n o um livro grande, sen o ia ficar desidratada E n o porque acontecem coisas tristes e trag dias, porque ele toca em assuntos do fundo da alma A escrita do Levithan t o po tica e ao mesmo tempo simples, direta Ele conversa com vc e toca onde quer tocar Talvez por n o ser um rapaz gay eu tinha tudo pra n o me identificar com esse livro, mas eu n o deixei um minuto de pensar em todos os amigos gays que cercam a minha v [...]

    20. I have no words This was absolutely amazing I started it just a couple of hours ago and I couldn t put it down So mesmerising I don t want to spoil the story, it s astonishing and I loved every single character, not only the 2 boys kissing , but also Avery and Ryan, Neil and Peter, even Cooper They all broke my heart I want to hug them all and keep them safe from any harm Such wonderful souls This is a book about dreams, aspirations, feelings, heart breaking, hurting, hope, dead hope, broken dre [...]

    21. Este libro ni s por d nde empezar Es un libro precioso, pero que te destroza un poquito por dentro En Dos Chicos Bes ndose encontramos varias historias paralelas de chicos homosexuales Est n Harry y Craig, que alguna vez fueron novios, y ahora quieren romper el r cord del beso m s largo del mundo que dura m s de 32 horas Neil y Peter, que llevan una relaci n bastante estable Ryan y Avery, que empiezan a conocerse, a salir y a aceptarse m s all de cualquier prejuicio Cooper, quien tiene una relac [...]

    22. 3.5 starsWhile I applaud David Levithan s ambition in writing a book like this, it did not blow me away Even though Two Boys Kissing focuses on two boys staying connected literally by the mouth for than 24 hours, I felt distanced from all of the characters in this novel.Two Boys Kissing revolves around Craig and Henry, two boys trying to set the record for longest kiss in the world While they broke up before setting out on this mission, Peter and Neil are a couple, even though they have issues [...]

    23. Lindo Lindo Lindo E lindo tamb m.Esse um dos livros mais diferentes que eu li nas ltimas semanas N o s pela forma como ele narrado, mas por todas as hist rias contadas Levithan cheio de frases maravilhosas, delicadamente compostas, e que passam uma sutileza e complexidade ao mesmo tempo Meu Deus como esse homem sabe o que t fazendo Li o livro todo em um dia e, apesar de demorar um pouquinho pra me acostumar com a narrativa, logo eu j estava dentro dele.Os personagens s o fant sticos, carism tico [...]

    24. Two Boys Kissing I love saying this title Two Boys Kissing The author, title, and cover had me swooning at first sight Love at first sight I mean look at that cover Beautiful.David Levithan s Two Boys Kissing is a powerful mix of voices, generations, pains, and fears Characters and voices that will show readers how so many emotions and opinions have changed and how so many things heart shatteringly remain the same Parents hurt, kids bully, and society disappoints no matter what the year on the c [...]

    25. What can I say I ve read many books with a better setting I ve read many books with a intriguing plot And I ve read many books in which I felt closer to the protagonists But Two Boys Kissing was still so much better than many of these books.I was eagerly looking forward to the release of this book and David Levithan did not disappoint far from it This book turned out to be by far my favourite of Levithans books and easily one of my favourite books of 2013 The cover and how gorgeous is the cover [...]

    26. 4.5 Stars, but rounding up because I feel like it.After several disappointments with David Levithan s works written with Rachel Cohn and Andrea Cremer, I d built up some healthy skepticism about whether his writing really worked for me With Two Boys Kissing, I now know that he s an author I definitely need to be reading, and am no longer concerned about the collection of his books I already own Two Boys Kissing is beautiful, a statement about what matters and what it s like to be a gay boy or ma [...]

    29. Beautiful and expert piece of writing rages without lecturing, empathises without pandering, and maintains to the finish a tone that is never too heavy nor too light.The story centres on two teenage boys trying to beat the world record for longest kiss, and follows a collection of LGBT characters across the stretch of time that the kiss lasts, occasionally commenting on their reaction to the kiss and its significance, which allows Levithan to build layer upon layer of meaning to the kiss what it [...]

    30. We always underestimated our own participation in magic I read this book back in August, just as we began our big move, and I m so excited to finally get the chance to talk it up to you guys.But first, a story to illustrate just why this book is so spot on and so important I had only read one other David Levithan novel before the sublime Lover s Dictionary I had always intended to read , but never got around to it So when I stumbled on him signing advanced copies of his latest book at BEA this y [...]
