I have read and reread this book over and over, as well as listen to the narrative. It makes me happy and sad at the same time. Happy because Nelson finally got someone to love in the end and happy because Jason and Kyle got to find out what true love is. Sad because all three boys are going to part ways, Nelson is staying in CA with his new love, Kyle and Jason are going to different colleges, which their love will be tested again.

I have read and reread this book. I even listen to it twice, which made it more lively. I think anyone that is gay, straight, or bisexual should read this book because I know it will help them a lot to understand the life style. I wish I could have met E.Lynn Harris and speak to him about his book. He is an excellent author and I want to write a book but don't know which direction to go on.

I have read and reread this book over and over, which I love so much. It still amaze me how people discover their sensuality at a young age, which I think is very sweet. It also put the thought that homosexuality is a choice to bed. Who in their right mind would chose to be called names, threatened, and even killed for liking the same sex.

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....
