Una comedia romantica de lo mas alegre y significativa acerca de encontrar el amor, perderlo y hacer lo que se necesite para recuperarlo en un mundo alocadamente maravilloso."Yo fui el primer presidente abiertamente gay de mi salon de tercer ano. He visto a dos hombres caminar de la mano por la calle en la ciudad y escuche de parejas de mujeres que se han casado no muy lejos de aqui. Encontre a un chico a quien tal vez ame, y no he huido. Creo que puedo ser quien yo quiera ser. Todas estas cosas me dan fortaleza."
“This wacky, charming, original story is never outrageous, and its characters are fresh, real, and deeply engaging. In its blithe acceptance and celebration of human differences, this is arguably the most important gay novel since Nancy Garden's Annie on My Mind; it seems to represent a revolution in the publishing of gay-themed books for adolescents.” Booklist, starred review
“A provocative and important read for all young adults, gay and straight.” School Library Journal, starred review
“In a genre filled with darkness, torment, and anxiety, this is a shiningly affirmative and hopeful book; it’s fitting that the final sentence is “And I think to myself, What a wonderful world.” It may not quite be reality as any of its readers experience it, but, then, that’s what fiction’s for.” The Bulletin, starred review
"With wry humor, wickedly quirky and yet real characters, and real situations, this is a must." Kirkus Reviews
From the Inside Flap
This is the story of Paul, a sophomore at a high school like no other: The cheerleaders ride Harleys, the homecoming queen used to be a guy named Daryl (she now prefers Infinite Darlene and is also the star quarterback), and the gay-straight alliance was formed to help the straight kids learn how to dance.
When Paul meets Noah, he thinks he's found the one his heart is made for. Until he blows it. The school bookie says the odds are 12-to-1 against him getting Noah back, but Paul's not giving up without playing his love really loud. His best friend Joni might be drifting away, his other best friend Tony might be dealing with ultra-religious parents, and his ex-boyfriend Kyle might not be going away anytime soon, but sometimes everything needs to fall apart before it can really fit together right.
This is a happy-meaningful romantic comedy about finding love, losing love, and doing what it takes to get love back in a crazy-wonderful world.
