Books like this paved the way for guy girl all night in New York random adventure alternative lifestyle push past comfort zone books like the Levithan/Cohen creations.

What I like most about Koertge is his treatment of characters. Spaz has CP, but his biggest problem is his uptight grandma and his starched shirt collars. Colleen is a drug addict who unapologetically makes the wrong choices over and over again. And that’s the book, all 160 pages of it. They meet without preamble, they part ways with a shocking lack of angst. And in between they dance a little, talk a lot, and generally become as temporarily important to each other as high school kids can.

My biggest tick in the negative column is the pacing of the book.
