    "An interesting story that likely appeals to a niche audience. It is filled with twists and turns that are hard to keep up with but nicely delivered in a good story."

    "Being gay has gave me an interest in my realm when I read books. At Swim, Two Boys was a book I recently l picked up while I am on leave from work to entertain myself. It was relevant to me and I am really glad I read it."

    "I love David Levithan's books, this one included. My only second thought on this particular story is that the setting is so completely unrealistic. My young gay friend said the same thing - if only a high school and community really responded like this to gay kids, life would be great. But it doesn't, so while it's a fun read, it's also a little disappointing if you're looking for something a little more true-to-life. Definitely something to aspire to for those of us in public education, though. Kids with gender and sexual identity questions can always find some hope and fun in Levithan's works. I book talk his work frequently, and kids love his books. "

    "Love Is A Stranger is about a gay man falling in love with his boss. The story is intriguing and the writing is solid. I would read a chapter before bed, but often ended up staying up way to late as I was too engrossed in the story. I recommend this book if you are looking for gay romance."

    "Maybe I would have found this to be a bit more interesting if the characters were college aged, but as it is I generally don't want to read about the relationships of 14 year olds. I also found the characters to lack depth overall on top of this."

    "The author holds an interesting story line. However the character development is lacking. After a while they kept saying the same thing over and over in different ways. I think the author got bored. "
