Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Alek Khederian should have guessed something was wrong when his parents took him to a restaurant. Everyone knows that Armenians never eat out. Between bouts of interrogating the waitress and criticizing the menu, Alek's parents announce that he'll be attending summer school to bring up his grades. Alek is sure this experience will be the perfect hellish end to his hellish freshman year of high school. He never could've predicted that he'd meet someone like Ethan. Ethan is everything Alek wishes he were: confident, free-spirited, and irreverent. He can't believe a guy this cool wants to be his friend. And before long, it seems like Ethan wants to be more than friends. Alek has never thought about having a boyfriend - he's barely ever had a girlfriend - but maybe it's time to think again.
Review Quote*Barakiva's first novel is at once a sweet-spirited love story. . . . The Armenian content adds flavor and texture. - Booklist "The story will appeal to both young people who are just discovering their own sexuality and readers who enjoy a good budding romance." - School Library Journal "Barakiva's debut is well-wrought and realistic . . . and it's entertaining." - Kirkus Reviews
