* "Konigsberg demonstrates once again why he is one of the major voices in LGBTQ literature." — Booklist, starred reviewMax: Chill. Sports. Video games. Gay and not a big deal, not to him, not to his mom, not to his buddies. And a secret: An encounter with an older kid that makes it hard to breathe, one that he doesn't want to think about, ever.Jordan: The opposite of chill. Poetry. His "wives" and the Chandler Mall. Never been kissed and searching for Mr. Right, who probably won't like him anyway. And a secret: A spiraling out of control mother, and the knowledge that he's the only one who can keep the family from falling apart.Throw in a rickety, 1980s-era food truck called Coq Au Vinny. Add in prickly pears, cloud eggs, and a murky idea of what's considered locally sourced and organic. Place it all in Mesa, Arizona, in June, where the temp regularly hits 114. And top it off with a touch of undeniable chemistry between utter opposites.Over the course of one summer, two boys will have to face their biggest fears and decide what they're willing to risk — to get the thing they want the most.

Beautifully nuanced characters, a deft touch on several sensitive topics, and an absolutely adorable romance. What's not to love?

I loved this book. It was so sweet and I felt so much for these characters. Poor Jordan is dealing with things with his mom that no child should ever have to deal with and Max is working through things no person should ever have to work through. I'm glad they had each other as they find out that not everyone is as bright and shiny as they pretend to be.
