Publisher's Summary

Jason Carrillo came out to his basketball team senior year and lost his university scholarship. Now, with graduation behind him and summer ending, he's asked to speak at the opening of a gay and lesbian high school across the country. But after spending years in the closet and losing his scholarship dream, what message can he offer?

Kyle Meeks is getting ready to go to Princeton in the fall and trying to see as much as possible of his boyfriend, Jason, before they have to separate. When Jason tells him about his speaking invitation, Kyle jumps at the chance to drive across country with him. Yet he can't help worrying: Will their romance survive two weeks crammed together in a car?

Nelson Glassman is happy his best friend Kyle has found love with Jason. Now he's looking for his own true love - and hopes he might find his soul mate during the road trip. But will being the "third wheel" in a trio ruin his friendships with Kyle and Jason? During an eye-opening post-graduation summer road trip, each of the three very different boys also embarks on a personal journey across a landscape of love, sexuality, homophobia, and above all, friendship.

Drove Me Nuts

Yeah, these boys are gay. Well, one claims to be bisexual. I don't know why that needs to make them as annoying as hell and carry on in such a selfish manner. Having enjoyed the first two books I found this road trip to be both boring and annoying. There was a number of times I wanted to shout at the player when Nelson did something totally selfish or stupid, or when Kyle sulked like an 11 year old. I found them both to be gratingly immature, self centered and annoying in this book. For me, they both seemed to have taken a step backwards in the level of maturity and self interest they had in the previous books.

The narration begun to grate on me also. The number of monotone 'whoo hoos' made me completely frustrated and annoyed. Perhaps I wasn't in the mood for this book, however I just found it to be tedious and annoying.

I just didn't like this book at all. Too many things went wrong, too many arguments and disagreements and generally too much angst for me to enjoy.

I wish you life, love and lots of wild romance

this is absolutely one of my favorite books I love I like Sanchez and his storytelling. I have read the rainbow boys series at least five times since I was 13 years old , it never gets boring. this is a great book to throw your feet up too and just sit back and relax.

love this book

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.
