This was a great YA book about not only finding true love, but of having the courage to become a role model to others if you are in the public eye. In the Foreward and throughout the book, you can definitely feel Mark Roeder's passionate stance on this topic.

Ralph, a young gay nondescript teen from Indiana has a long-standing crush on teen idol and rock star, Jordan. I found the premise of the book to be entertaining because it basically outlines a dream-come-true for all young adults throughou

Do You Know That I Love You is a cute and fluffy romance book that makes the reader smile and butterflies flutter in stomach.

This is a fantastic book, not only is it novel about finding love, it's also a novel that allows the reader to see that a role model can be anyone, black, white, tall, short, skinny, fat, male, female, straight or gay.

Although, there is a lack of realism, it's still one of those books that anyone could relate to. Everyone at some point or another has a crush on a band member. For Ralph, the farm boy from Indiana, his crush develops and becomes a reality.
