It was a good book, but too simply written, and very frustrating. It's like the author was trying to drag the book on further than it needed to be. Yes, I would recommend this book for YA readers looking for romantic book, but if you're an advanced reader who likes fast-paced books that are detailed, this isn't the one. Maybe 3 1/2 stars out of 5.

A fluffy and simplistic read, but may be too corny for most.

I see that a couple readers had trouble following the book. I did not experience that.

It was a quick and smooth read, with plenty of dated cultural references, which I'm a total sucker for. The comic was beautiful. The ending built up to a sappy, happy and hopeful time for everyone.

The main character's intense fears around coming out about his sexuality are very relatable. Even though he has supportive parents who encourage him to be open about the truth and friends and classmates who hint that they know, he is still intensely afraid.

Never really sure what to write about books.

I will agree with ''Labonte" and say that this book was a confusing book to read. I could bot even get to page 79 because the story was very out of place, in my opinion.
I thought that parts of the portion I read of the book were nice and it had some great moments.
The story, as I said, was very out of place and there were so many characters in the novel that it was hard to keep track of which character was who.

This is a fine book if you're into gay romance novels. I will warn you, though, the ending is HILARIOUSLY unrealistic. Do Not expect something like that to happen in regular life. A common bit of fluff, this book is probably not life changing, but it's okay.

Teenaged angst is doubly hard when you’re gay. Jamie Peterson’s problems, however, seem multiplied out of all proportion and you have to wonder if most of his fears are real or merely imagined.

He’s out to his mother and stepdad but not to his friends in school. However, everybody already seems to know that he’s gay, even though he’s gone to all sorts of effort to keep it hidden. He thinks his best friend Mason doesn’t know—but how can Mason be clueless if everyone else seems in on the secret? Are the people around him truly as homophobic as some of his magazine editors fear or will they be more accepting once the news comes out?

Jamie’s emotions are on a real roller coaster. Reading this novel brings back all the churning anxiety of being an insecure adolescent, when you analyzed and re-analyzed everything that people said around you, when you wondered if someone you had a crush on really liked you or was just being friendly.

The novel contains a graphic short that is so enjoyable to read that I wished the book contained more of them. It’s a very plausible story, filled with such nail-biting tension that it’s enough to make you experience Jamie’s worry, even if it’s only secondhand. It is also one of the better coming-out stories you’re likely to read in fiction.

- I couldn't finish it.
- I got about 1/2 way through & I gave up.
- Most of the time I was totally confuse or I just couldn't figure out what the heck was going on.
- I guess I was not used 2 her (the author) way of speaking.
- I've never read a book until now that was so hard to understand.
- or maybe it's just me.
