    New York Times best seller

    Stonewall Honor Book

    Lambda Literary Award Winner

    From the New York Times best-selling author of Every Day, this love story of shared humanity and history Hypable calls "an interconnecting web that will leave you emotionally exhausted and absolutely thrilled to have read something so beautiful and unique".

    Based on true events - and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS - Two Boys Kissing follows Harry and Craig, two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity, and belonging.

    Great performance, too much moral no story

    Awesome performance from the author, which I really enjoyed.

    However I didn't like the book itself, way too educational for my taste. It made feel there was a task to pack as many AIDS-remembrance into a book as possible, and while an army of dead comment all the happenings, these stories are ordinary, boring and feel unfinished. (I feel awful writing these thinking about the memory of the dead, sorry!)

    Usually there's a story with or without a moral. Here I felt no story but tons of moral. Wasn't even sure if this book still meets the category of a novel. It just wasn't what I was looking for.

    Inspiring!

    I've listened to this book the last couple days on my way to work and I didn't want to leave the car I wanted to keep listening to it.

    An emotional rollercoaster

    I expected a lot of this book for various reason and I can only say: I was in no way disappointed. I fell in love with David Levithans voice and story and cried on more than One occasion over how true the told is and how painful it must be to experience it.
    I would recommend it to pretty much everyone who is slighty interested in the whole idea of the book.
