Inhaltsangabe

“A love letter to queerness, self-expression, and individuality (also Madonna) that never shies away from the ever-present fear within the queer community of late '80s New York, Like a Love Story made me feel so full - of hope, love, courage, pride, and awe for the many people who fought for love and self-expression in the face of discrimination, cruelty, and death.

"A book for warriors, divas, artists, queens, individuals, activists, trend setters, and anyone searching for the courage to be themselves.” (Mackenzi Lee, New York Times best-selling author of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue)

It’s 1989 in New York City, and for three teens, the world is changing. 

Reza is an Iranian boy who has just moved to the city with his mother to live with his stepfather and stepbrother. He’s terrified that someone will guess the truth he can barely acknowledge about himself. Reza knows he’s gay, but all he knows of gay life are the media’s images of men dying of AIDS. 

Judy is an aspiring fashion designer who worships her uncle Stephen, a gay man with AIDS who devotes his time to activism as a member of ACT UP. Judy has never imagined finding romance...until she falls for Reza and they start dating. 

Art is Judy’s best friend, their school’s only out and proud teen. He’ll never be who his conservative parents want him to be, so he rebels by documenting the AIDS crisis through his photographs. 

As Reza and Art grow closer, Reza struggles to find a way out of his deception that won’t break Judy’s heart - and destroy the most meaningful friendship he’s ever known. 

This is a bighearted, sprawling epic about friendship and love and the revolutionary act of living life to the fullest in the face of impossible odds.

A truly touching and meaningful story

I have read a lot of queer YA stories recently and this one stands out the most by far. Not only does it deal with important topics and addresses them with great care, it is also a beautiful story that touches you and sticks with you long after finishing.

Read this book.

beautiful & important

Did I bawl my eyes out at the end? Yes. Was it worth it? Definitely. This story of beautiful, authentic characters and important messages is the most perfectly wrapped history lesson of queer culture and the AIDS crisis imaginable.
