I fantastic book brilliently performed. I enyoyed this so much. Its so often we get books on gay subject matter which are depressing but this is an uplifting story which gives you a feel of Hollywood happiness that doesn't make you feel like you are being programmed into a Christian life style.

This was one amazing audiobook. The performances were so well done I was blown away. I highly recommend it.
The story was pretty good. A bit fantastical but it was funny in its quirkiness. Beautiful words and descriptions are staples of Levithan and I appreciate that he always brings it in that sense.
I would have liked to know more about Tony and Noah though. They seem to have a lot on their minds but too much time was spent on characters that were basically already where they'd stay for the entire story.
If you like the stereotypical coming of age story lines then this is your book. I liked it all the story was great and the performances were the best. I wish I could have grown up in a town like this one. I myself was more like Tony with the very religious family and trying to live a double life. Although I wish my story of coming out to them was as loving and awkward as his was. As soon as I came out I was told I had a week to get out of the house, my mom blamed herself, my little sister was cool about it and my little brother didn't really know what was going on at the time. Anyway it wasn't fun and I never thought that they would say they loved me in the same sentence that they say I'm no longer welcome in their house, my own parents! I couldn't understand. Nor was I able to cope with living in my own at 16. But this book makes it a wonderful thing and I just loved listening.
I listen to a lot of audio books and I found this to be one of my favorites. The cast was truly amazing and the music transitions were perfect. Of course the book is a wonderful story and touched me deeply. Thank you Full Cast for bringing the book to life!
It takes the standard "boy meets girl" romcom and places it in a atmosphere where changing it to "boy meets boy" doesn't twist much. Homophobia really isn't a core issue, which is very refreshing and so so neat for a LGBT book. Combined with the amazing performance, it really makes you think about the world we live in today and how we can make it better. You just have to smile at how fantastical it all is.
Audible rawks! My taste is beyond eclectic and Audible always has plenty to choose from, no matter what mood I'm in!
The readers were a bit bland, but the story was very cute - very YA :) The story didn't tell about anything brutal, but the kid with patents who believe in his eternal damnation were horrible enough in their 'we love you, but ..." stupidity.
This romantic comedy is worth the read, or in my case, the listen. Amazing story preformed by extremely talented young people. I wish all high schools cold be like Paul's school and all towns like his hometown. Paul's family rocks. I laughed. I shed a few tears. I learned more about the struggle my chill had to go through. Read this book.
I loved this book. I can really relate it to myself and the troubles I have I high school. Thank you so much for writing this book. And I hope another virgin comes out. Thank you.
