"You have to read this." -- Rainbow Rowell, bestselling author of Eleanor & Park

In his follow-up to tthe New York Times bestselling author of Every Day, andDavid Levithan, coauthor of bestsellers Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green) and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn) , crafts a novel that the Los Angeles Times calls "open, frank, and ultimately optimistic."

Based on true events--and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS-- Two Boys Kissing follows Harry and Craig, two seventeen-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity, and belonging.

Named to the National Book Award Longlist A Lambda Literary Award Winner A Stonewall Honor Book

"An intriguing, complex narrative with an unusual point of view... and] a quality of retrospection that is rare (and refreshing) in YA literature." -- The Washington Post
