Two Boys Kissing, by David Levithan
Based on true events—and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS— Two Boys Kissing follows Harry and Craig, two seventeen-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity, and belonging.
