    1. I picked up this book during my freshman year of high school. I was at a not-quite-date with one of my friends, and he and I had stopped in a small bookstore. I think I first grabbed it because the spine's graphics and thought it was intriguing. I was fourteen, we were late for a movie, and I didn't have much of a chance to see what it was about, but it was less than $9.99 so I thought, "why not?" and bought it.I read the entire thing that afternoon, and it has remained my favorite "young adult [...]

    2. I'm a little torn on this one. For what it is, I really did enjoy the book; most of the characters were portrayed well, I loved the idea of sitting on the toilet to think over heavy stuff (though it was a bit overused), and the secret friend at the soccer games was an interesting subplot. However, I found the soccer practice scenes and game talk a little drawn out. I know nothing about soccer so sometimes I felt a bit lost. I'm also not overly thrilled about The bisexual male friend Sam makes in [...]

    3. Now that Sam is beyond high school, he has just admitted to himself that he has feelings for girls and boys when he meets the intriguing Toby. Sam is funny and nervous and often blurts out things at the wrong time, and he does his best thinking while sitting in the loo. He's just a guy on the local "football" squad who is sorting out his feelings for another guy that may be bisexual, just like him. There is a lot of British slang in this story, but it is easy to follow, and I liked the narrator' [...]

    4. I read about a third of thislots of British slang, slightly older characters than other "gay teen" books I've been reading's coarser, but that may mean it's more accurate. Also, this isn't strictly gay-guy stuff, since everyone seemes to be attracted to everyone, whether they admit it or not. There are some probably accurate feelings/suppression of feelings episodes. I just couldn't get past the fact that I didn't like the narrator. I think some readers might have a hard time with the slang - it [...]

    5. It's rare that bisexual boys are portrayed in books for whatever reason so this was a refreshing change. It's your typical GLBT story - Sam, a british teen is trying to come to terms with liking both boys and girls - but it was charming and fun. Sam plays on a football team and it was interesting to me, a girl who has never really played on a sports team, how that came into it. A good GLBT YA read!

    6. This would make a great read for any teenager who is questioning their own sexuality. I would have liked to have gotten to know some of the other characters better. I forgot how easy to read some YA books are.

    7. This is a great coming of age novel about two bisexual teenagers and their struggle to figure out their individual identity in a world that insists on labels. It is touching at times and also heartbreaking. Set in England, it is chock full of great English slang and lots of football.

    8. i hated this book when i looked at it, but what they say is true "dont judge a book by its cover". once i started reading it i couldn't put it down .
