Wishlist Thursday[19]: Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
Genre: YA Contemporary
Publisher: Knopf Books
Publish Date: August 27th, 2013
Goodreads Synopsis:

New York Times  bestselling author David Levithan tells the based-on-true-events story of 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—all of which is narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS.

While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teen boys dealing with languishing long-term relationships, coming out, navigating gender identity, and falling deeper into the digital rabbit hole of gay hookup sites—all while the kissing former couple tries to figure out their own feelings for each other.

This follow-up to the bestselling Every Day showcases David's trademark sharp-witted, warm-hearted tales of teenage love, and serves as a perfect thematic bookend to David's YA debut and breakthrough, Boy Meets Boy, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2013. 


I’ve only read a couple of Levithan’s books, and I’m honestly not sure why. What I’ve read of his, I’ve really liked, and most of his books sound particularly good to me. I’m probably going to have to start making my way through all of his books soon.
