The two boys kissing are Craig and Harry. They are not a couple, but they used to be. Peter and Neil are a couple. Their kisses are different. Avery and Ryan have only just met and are trying to figure out what happens next. Cooper is alone and trying to make sense out of his feelings. These boys form a tapestry that will reveal love of all kinds: open and eager, tentative and cautious, pained and scared. Winner of the Stonewall Honor Books award and the Best Fiction for Young Adults, Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan was challenged or banned because the cover has an image of two boys kissing and because it includes sexually explicit LGBT content.
