The Book of David

We all know how much I love these published journals. Basically, this one is about this football player who just so happens to have a crush on the new boy at school....instead of his cheerleader girlfriend. He majorly starts crushing on him and can't stop thinking about him. So he stays up and writes all this down in his little journal for school. Every entry ends up being about Jonathan. Jon and David become inseparable, knocking his "best" friend Tyler out of the picture. David doesn't want to be gay, but he has always known he is. Jon has shown him what that means and more importantly who he really is. Being gay is not an easy thing to be in today's society and this journal displays that perfectly.  David and Jon's secret relationship gets put on the internet and begins to make their lives crumble... I always read the last chapter first, but don't worry. I won't ruin that part for you. Definitely a book that everyone needs to read. See things from a different perspective, you might be surprised.
