Both Sergio and Lance are ready for a relationship that won’t leave them brokenhearted in the end. After connecting from the first date, the teens feel optimistically about their chances together. Unfortunately, both boys come with relationship baggage and conflicting opinions on sexuality. Lance believes bisexuality is just a cover for individuals still wrestling with their sexual identities, and therefore Sergio’s previous relationship with a girl confuses him. Lance’s best friend Allie is also dealing with her own uncertainties over her long-term boyfriend. Allie’s budding friendship and instant chemistry with Sergio’s best friend Kimiko brings forth questions about her own sexual identity. Sanchez’s novel is a light, easy read that touches upon issues of relationships, family acceptance, and peer pressures that many LGBTQ teens face today. All four of the main characters are written as individuals with different traits and experiences that provide a spectrum of personalities. These teen characters remain lively and personable, even when they are forced to deal with difficult situations. This novel is highly recommended for young adults due to its consistent use of humor and optimism as a means to overcome life’s challenges.
