"New York Times  bestselling author David Levithan tells the based-on-true-events story of Harry and Craig, two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record—all of which is narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS. 
While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teen boys dealing with languishing long-term relationships, coming out, navigating gender identity, and falling deeper into the digital rabbit hole of gay hookup sites......"


I love reading some LGBT literature and I find it to be really educating into what LGBT people face in there everyday lives and how they cope with all the torment. I heard though booktube that this cover alone is getting alot of controversy about it because of the two boys that are clearly kissing on the cover and I think that is the main reason why I really want this book. I support LGBT and buying this book would help support them even more, because I feel that it would show publishers that people are buying this book knowing what this cover looks like because I believe they think that covers like these would not do well in the market as it would if a man and woman were kissing on the cover. So that is just one reason why I want this book. I WANT TO READ!!! I the synopsis sounded really good and I love David's books. 


Thank you for reading my post
