Publisher's Summary

What if you went to a school where it was actually all right to be who you really are? That's the enchanting place David Levithan has created in his highly acclaimed first novel. But even if the gay kids and the straight kids all get along just fine, even if it's all right for the quarterback to be a cross dresser named Infinite Darlene and the cheerleaders to ride Harleys into the pep rally, the road to true love is still a strange and winding path, as Paul discovers when he meets the boy of his dreams. Charming, funny, delightful, and utterly heartwarming, this YA novel speaks with clarity and depth about our need to love and be loved.

Critic Reviews

"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." (Booklist)
"Levithan's prophecy of a hate-free world in which everyone loves without persecution makes this a provocative and important read for all young adults, gay or straight." (School Library Journal)

Kudos to Full Cast Audio

The first time I read David Levithan's "Boy Meets Boy," I was immediately drawn in by his stealthful command of language and how effortlessly he gave the voices of his characters meter and life.

Like many people who fear seeing a favorite book turned into a movie, I approached this recording with some hesitation. It's one thing for a narrator to simply read a book. It's another for actors to take on the roles of the characters. How would this match up with how I heard the characters in my head?

I was IN NO WAY disappointed. The performers did a remarkable job of capturing the nuances of the characters (or, at least how I had imagined them). I also like the interspersal of music which seemed so organic to the material.

This production is well worth a listen and I'll certainly be looking for other Full Cast Audio books in the future.

A wonderful and touching book

Boy Meets Boy is a sweet, funny and moving story set in the Sophmore year of the protagonist, Paul. Paul likes Noah and Noah likes Paul, but everything conspires to try and keep the two apart.

David Levithan has written a story that manages, in the most pleasing way to paint a picture of the world as it should be.

The recording on Audible is a "full cast" production with different actors for each character; the recoding is extremely well done and engaging.

This is a wonderful book that will appeal to both young and old. I loved and I highly recommend it.
