Two weeks ago I mentioned what a great "read" this new book from David Levithan is: Two Boys Kissing:

I'm confident that there exist other reviews of this fine LGBT book (primarily YA)... but, I just came across this great comment in today's The Boston Globe:

No one finds "coming out" to be a cakewalk!

Here's just one excerpt from You Can Tell Just by Looking… And 20 Other Myths about LGBT Life and People: book published today, October 01.

To summarize: It's never easy to come out…

Let's hope that a review by Jeff will be forthcoming soon!

Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

What a great "read" this most recent book is from David Levithan: Two Boys Kissing!

I received it just yesterday… and it's already finished.

I've never before read a story told quite like this. First… there are no chapters! Second… it is subtly interwoven with a ghostly running commentary delivered by the collective observers from a now-distant, tragic era of gay history. The main story, however, is far from tragic!

You are assured of finding it exceedingly uplifting… and there is no doubt that you will find in it much that touches very close to home.
