Publisher's Summary

Nelson Glassman may have been exposed to the HIV virus and is terrified of testing positive...but what if being positive is the only way to keep the guy of his dreams? Kyle Meeks finally has the guy of his dreams and is ready to do anything to stay by his side...but will "anything" include sabotaging his own future? Jason Carrillo knows he has to face his future and is prepared to face it out and gay...but is he prepared to let go of the dream that has sustained him all of his life?

As their high school days draw to a close and these three friends move toward one of life's most defining crossroads, each will be compelled to choose his own direction - and prepare for the consequences.

Bold voice Alex Sanchez continues the story begun in his critically acclaimed debut Rainbow Boys with this captivating and straightforward depiction of living, loving, and losing that goes straight to the heart of what it means to be young and gay.

Great for teen

Great was a great teaching of issues in high school with coming out. Only wish the narrator would have had different voices for the 5 main characters.

Story a bit flat

Story is a bit slow and a bit flat. Characters need a bit more character. Good issue coverage with coming out (including sports). Narrator is ok, perhaps more voices would make things a bit more interesting.

Nice Story

This series is a great interwoven story of 3 gay individuals’ coming of age stories. Very good, especially when you consider that it predates the popularity of this genre by a few years. One interesting gripe, and I don’t know if this slipped past the editors in the actual print copy or was merely a slip of the narrator’s tongue, is that I’ve heard a few different instances of characters accidentally being referred to by other characters’ names.

Read it growing up

I read these story growing up and going through puberty, listened to it before I buy the book for my nephew who is 12 and came out to me as possibly being bisexual. I’m so excited to gift him the trilogy!

love this book

Everytime I read this book or books like this one makes me happy and mad at the same time. Happy because two people finally found each other and I hope they remain together. Mad because of the comments and the different approaches that each of the boys receive. One boy was popular and when he came out, he got praise for it. The other one, whom was the other boy boyfriend, came out but got so hated for it and went through the shit he went through. I am gay but never came out until I finish high school. I only let people know I am gay when they ask. I just wanted to add one more thing before I go, why do straight guys always assume that a boy is straight if he don't act flamboyant. Also I would like to know about there stories after the book "Rainbow Road"
