Julian is ugly. He knows it. Everyone knows it. He is also a boy with secrets. He's gay, his family owns the local funeral home, and he's not certain which secret he more desperately desires to keep. Julian is a wallflower, but tries out for the soccer team to please his father. Beyond all hope, he makes the team - and there he meets boys who change his life forever and a coach he suspects is trying to kill him.

I loved this book because it had a great realistic character. Someone who has body image issues. It shows that it truly isn't what is on the outside that matters.

Justin has two goals for sophomore year: to date Chuck, the hottest boy in school, and to become the king of Cool U, the table in the cafeteria where the "in" crowd sits. Unfortunately, he has the wrong look (short, plump, Brillo-pad curls), he has the wrong interests (Broadway, chorus violin), and he has the wrong friends (Spencer, into Eastern religions, and Mary Ann, who doesn't shave her armpits). And Chuck? Well, he's not gay; he's dating Becky, a girl in chorus with whom Justin is friendly.

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship - the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.

As the title says, this was a great story. The author got me to be angry at moments and sad and all sorts of other emotions which is what I like from a book. I never like books that from start to finish are predictable, and this was not predictable.

The narrator also portrays the character perfectly in my mind.

I would recommend this book to ANYONE. (:
