Boy Meets Boy is the first book I’ve read by David Levithan. It follows the story of Paul, a cheerful high school student when he meets Noah. I discovered this book when I came across its audiobook and decided to give it a try.
The first thing I would like to say is that I am very, very glad I read this book 😀
The story is magical! I loved the narrator’s voice. It felt like he was directly talking to me and telling me his tale. The writing is unique, almost poetic. The book is full of love and emotions shown through its heartfelt writing. It felt realistic as well as out of this world.
I loved Paul’s character. I liked that he was confident and comfortable with being himself. I also really liked how Paul and Noah met. They were sweet and quirky and I loved seeing them together.
Every character in this book is different and brilliantly made. They are interesting and very unique.
I took my time in reading this book, savoring the experience. It is one of the those special books that really know how to tell a love story, where you can truly feel the love and romance between the characters. I could tell right from the start that it was heading towards the path of a great romance!
One of the things that made this book so special is the audiobook. It was brilliantly done with a full cast! It had music in between and I felt like I was watching, or in this case hearing, a movie. It was the best audiobook experience I’ve ever had!
This book is a fantastic contemporary LGBTQ book. David Levithan did an amazing job and I enjoyed every second of this novel. It was one of those books that I know will stay with me for a long time. Also, the title couldn’t have been more simple and perfect.
This was not just a book but an amazing experience and I highly recommend it!

I read Two Boys Kissing and Every Day by this author, and ADORED them both. Leviathan is a master. I’ll have to read this one soon!!
I’ve heard great things about Everyday and Two Boys Kissing seems good too. I’ll have to try them both soon:D
Wonderful review! I don’t usually read LGBTQ but the one I’ve read Wolfsong by TJ Klune really moved me and I found it incredible. So I won’t turn my back to the genre anymore 😉
Thank you so much! I will check out Wolfsong. I would like to read more great books from this genre as well.
