This is an interesting book, and I was drawn to it for a number of reasons. Geographically speaking it is based in an area that I became familiar with as a student; moving to London south of the river was part adventure, part rebellion for me. The time frame is also one that I was familiar with; the events, the marches, the music - I even attended one of the rallies and concerts described in the book. I haven't read much LGBT lit, and wanted to become more familiar with the genre. But, because I've not read any of the genre aimed at the YA market, I'm not sure how this measures up and if it should be classified as adult or YA. David is a lovely character who becomes increasingly confident in his own sexuality as the book progresses. It's a coming-of-age novel, but one that I would be reluctant to recommend because of its explicit nature.
