Harry and Craig are two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. Their kiss becomes a focal point in the lives of other teen boys dealing with long-term relationships, coming out, gender identity, and gay hookup sites.
This is all narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS. It sounds kind of bizarre (morbid? sentimental?) but New York Times bestselling author David Levithan makes it work. This is a beautiful story with complex and well-developed characters.
