    What if you went to a school where it was actually all right to be who you really are? That's the enchanting place David Levithan has created in his highly acclaimed first novel. But even if the gay kids and the straight kids all get along just fine, even if it's all right for the quarterback to be a cross dresser named Infinite Darlene and the cheerleaders to ride Harleys into the pep rally, the road to true love is still a strange and winding path, as Paul discovers when he meets the boy of his dreams.

    Overall

    The first time I read David Levithan's "Boy Meets Boy," I was immediately drawn in by his stealthful command of language and how effortlessly he gave the voices of his characters meter and life.

    Like many people who fear seeing a favorite book turned into a movie, I approached this recording with some hesitation. It's one thing for a narrator to simply read a book. It's another for actors to take on the roles of the characters. How would this match up with how I heard the characters in my head?

    I was IN NO WAY disappointed. The performers did a remarkable job of capturing the nuances of the characters (or, at least how I had imagined them). I also like the interspersal of music which seemed so organic to the material.

    This production is well worth a listen and I'll certainly be looking for other Full Cast Audio books in the future.
