Summary
From the award-winning author of Openly Straight, a story about two teens falling in love over a summer that throws everything possible to keep them apart.

Max: Chill. Sports. Video games. Gay and not a big deal, not to him, not to his mom, not to his buddies. And a secret: An encounter with an older kid that makes it hard to breathe, one that he doesn't want to think about, ever.Jordan: The opposite of chill. Poetry. His 'wives' and the Chandler Mall. Never been kissed and searching for Mr. Right, who probably won't like him anyway. And a secret: A spiraling out of control mother, and the knowledge that he's the only one who can keep the family from falling apart.Throw in a rickety, 1980s-era food truck called Coq Au Vinny. Add in prickly pears, cloud eggs, and a murky idea of what's considered locally sourced and organic. Place it all in Mesa, Arizona, in June, where the temp regularly hits 114. And top it off with a touch of undeniable chemistry between utter opposites.Over the course of one summer, two boys will have to face their biggest fears and decide what they're willing to risk -- to get the thing they want the most.

Excellent title with a modern story line, but not sure why there needs to be 2 narrators for Max. Other than that, a great read.

I love authors exploring the issue, accepting and acknowledging everyone is different and that is to be celebrated, bringing current issues to light. The author succeeds in this as well as how messed up adults can be in what not to do. I also enjoy those aha moments when the title of a book becomes clear; this is is done well too. While I didn’t find this book to be at the same caliber as the books like Autoboyography and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (to name just a couple), I did like the author’s effort in exploring the tough issues and bringing some unique issues to light. With that said, I had a problem with the narration for Jordan. We he was speaking in dialogue as Max, it just didn’t work, which was too bad because the narration of Max’s voice is great.
