This is the second book that follows [Rainbow Boys], and I liked it as much as I liked the first book. The characters make the story what it is and each one has more life and romance drama to keep me entertained. Sanchez’s writing style is well done, straight forward but still full of expression. There’s a lot this book can offer: humor, drama, love, suspense, etc. Recommended for any reader who likes YA GLBT books. ( )

Kyle, Nelson, and Jason are high school seniors. Nelson has had a crush on his best friend Kyle for ages, but Kyle is dating Jason, the star of the basketball team. Meanwhile in an attempt to move on from Kyle, Nelson starts dating Jeremy, a college student who is HIV positive. Kyle is worried about Nelson getting infected, Jason is worried about coming out to his team, and all three of them are worried about whether they'll be able to go to college together.

This isn't the best written thing ever, and the "hip" dialogue feels a little forced, but it's enjoyable and a fast read. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the other two books in the series. ( )

Nelson Glassman and Kyle Meeks, best friends for many years, are gay teens at Walt Whitman High School. Kyle becomes romantically involved with basketball jock Jason Carrillo, while Nelson embarks on a strained relationship with Jeremy, who has tested positive for HIV. Jason comes out to his teammates and endures public scrutiny on television, eventually losing his athletic scholarship. On the homefront, Kyle's parents desperately want him to attend Princeton, although this would mean leaving Jason behind, and Nelson's mother insists that he end his relationship with Jeremy. Throughout these vicissitudes, the young men provide support for one another as graduation approaches.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689854781, Paperback)

Jason Carrillo, the best-looking athlete in school, has had his eyes on the prize from day one: a scholarship for college.

But then his eyes turn to love -- and Kyle.

Kyle Meeks, swim team star and all-around good guy, is finally in the relationship he wanted. Being in love feels so good, in fact, that he can't imagine giving it up to go to Princeton.

Something he's worked for his entire life.

Nelson Glassman, outgoing and defiant, might be HIV positive. Jeremy, the boy he loves, is HIV positive. Although Nelson fears testing positive, if he is infected Jeremy might stop protecting him and pushing him away.

They can be together.

High shool's almost over. Graduation is ahead. Life's a bowl of cherries, right? Right...
