I love this book because of the emotions and memories from my youth that it conjures in me. How a romance can blossom full of uncertainties and unspoken desires. Yes, it’s a story of a summer romance between two men, but the way it’s written, the rich and lush prose, it transcends genders. I see this book as a study of the human heart, how we reluctantly succumb to its wants and how we never fully heal after our first heartbreak. This book was able to convey what I have tried my whole life to explain…how it feels to love in ways a lot of people find abnormal and sinful. Needless to say, it’s pure poetic magic.
