    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

    Growing up as a homosexual in high school, I know how difficult it can be being openly gay around people who just don't understand. In Boy Meets Boy, David Levithan creates a world that all homosexuals dream about in high school. A place where we can be open about our feelings and honest with each other. A world that everyone accepts everyone else regardless of that persons feelings or decisions. Plus, we all think about finding our true love and David creates that world where that dream can come true; regardless if you are looking for a man or a woman. We realize that our dreams can come true if we just go after them. Boy Meets Boy was a really awsome book that allowed me to think back to my high school days and dream that they were different than what they were. But if they had been, I probably wouldn't be the person that I am today.

When a sudden illness sends Alice to the hospital, a glorious vision comes to her in her dreams. There, standing before her, is Johnny. Through a season of hope and healing, Johnny will walk by his mother's side, leading his parents, his girlfriend, his sister, and his brother out of their grief.

    Overall

    I read Johnny Angel when it was first released and I thought that it was an excellent book. Though it was not like her many other books, that is what made it great.

    Most of her books deal with the issue of sex and sometimes abuse, whereas Johnny Angel deals with the aspect of a mother's love for her son even after his death.

    When her son, Johnny, died in a car accident on his prom night, it destroyed the lives of all of the people that he loved. But what moved me the most was that Johnny came back as an angel to help his mother and brother move on with their lives. But he didn't stop there, he helped his girlfriend find someone to love her just as much as he did. And in effect, it touched the lives of everyone around them.

    Johnny Angel was very moving and touching in my opinion and I admit, I cried through the entire book. Whenever I get the chance I recommend it for other people to read because I enjoyed it so much.

    To Danelle Steele, if you ever write a story like this one again, I will definetly read it over and over again. You have my full support and I do hope that you write more books just like this one.
