    "Puppy Love is a disappointment. There are much better options for young adult LGBT+ fiction than this. The writing is childish and immature, as are the characters. The love story is cliché and basically just porn with no nuance to it."

    "The Journeyer is a good romance book to read if you are interested in gay teenagers. You must also really enjoy adventure novels though. This isn't extremely geared towards those looking specifically for a romance heavy book."

    ""Boy Meets Boy" is a pleasant read for its intended audience for the most part, though some of the author's later works might be a bit better. Some of the characters and situations do seem a bit cliche, in my opinion. Nonetheless, a certain level of camp is typically tolerated in this kind of work, so the entire book doesn't fail as a whole, necessarily."

The book is an interesting coming of age story of a young gay boy and his first love in high school. Of course nothing is easy for these gay lovers, but they find a way to connect and fall in love.

    "This book has a good story to it that incorporates a lot of modern topics, such as gay relationships, divorce, step-siblings, and teenagehood. However, it falls short of having a gay teen relationship like I wanted, so it doesn't really communicate to LGBTQ teens that even when you're young, you should love who you love despite adversity. It is heartwarming and funny with some good lessons in it, though."
