Ive published fourteen novels, had nine screenplays optioned, and had two of my projects turned into feature films.

I cried harder the second time. We all lived in a world where being different is bad, ridiculed and not welcome. I think it is a bit ironic that people keep telling us to be different, to think different. But here we are getting shit for being different. And that even more suck in high school where they say has the best memories but it is also where anyone can find themselves in a toughest situation.
And this book is about getting through that and also about It is my second read of this book. And this book is about getting through that and also about friendship and finding new ones. This book kind of amazing for me. The writing and the plot will just suck you in and make you relate to the story. I think Russel, being the one telling the story has a way of getting sympathy. The readers can really connect with him. And amazing job for Brent Hartinger.
Pretty likable sub-characters too. Specially Min, Gunnar, and Brian. They are well written for me and has good attributes.
I would also like to talk about Russel and Kevin. Really teenage love. It just make me, what is the more appropriate term for giggle for males? There was a scene in the book where Kevin kind of said that he like boys who takes risk and Russel want to do that, for Kevin. But sometimes when we like someone, we want to be the person they like or want that in the process we started losing ourselves too. For me, Russel made the right decision in the end.
But I am hopeful for the next book. This is the kind of book that really makes me want to read YA more. This book made me laugh too! Near the end. This is kind of cute actually.

Apr 17, Kealsey rated it did not like it Shelves: The parts with Hartingre and his love interest occur way later in the novel vs the film had it in the beginning and had more emotionally intimate scenes and leave you hanging for more detail. We need more gay narrators for YA!
