Love meets love. Confusion meets clarity. Boy meets boy.
To be together with someone for twenty years seems like an eternity. I can't seem to manage twenty days...
How do you stay together?
Paul has been gay his whole life and he's confident about almost everything. He doesn't have to hide his feelings like best friend Tony or even cope with loving the wrong guy like his other best friend Joni.
But heartbreak can happen to anyone. Falling in love changes everything.
"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
