Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ellen loves Link and James. Her older brother and his best friend are the only company she ever wants. She knows they fight, but she makes it a policy never to take sides. She loves her brother, the math genius and track star. And she is totally, madly in love with James, with his long eyelashes and hidden smiles. "When you grow out of it," James teases her, "you will break my heart." Then someone at school asks if Link and James might be in love with each other. A simple question. But the answer is far from simple, and its repercussions affect their entire lives. This extraordinary, multiple award-winning novel is funny, heartbreaking, and messy — just like its characters, just like life.

"Freymann-Weyr captures the essence of coming of age and sexual awareness in this novel. Her straightforward manner on a touchy subject is impressive and has much to offer straight and gay teens." Children's Literature

Review:

"Free of cliché and any hidden agenda, it will appeal to readers looking for something a bit different from the traditional love story." VOYA

Review:

"Freymann-Weyr...has produced a beautifully crafted and often witty tale ofemotional discovery and self-discovery." KLIATT

I always judge the book by the cover and the cover of this one looked very interesting. And I'm glad I read it. I'm not really into love novels but this one was really great. I read it in two days flat,it was so good! I recommend this book to anyone that like short link books as well as romance of any kind. I plan on reading more of the author's books as soon as I can.
