Once again, David Levithan amazes me. Here is the summary (taken off of David Levithan's website):
In the not-too-impossible-to-imagine future, a gay Jewish man has been elected president of the United States. Until the governor of one state decides that some election results in his state are invalid, awarding crucial votes to the other candidate, and his fellow party member. Thus is the inspiration for couple Jimmy and Duncan to lend their support to their candidate by deciding to take part in the rallies and protests. Along the way comes an exploration of their relationship, their politics, and their country, and sometimes, as they learn, it's more about the journey than it is about reaching the destination.Only David Levithan could so masterfully and creatively weave together a plot that's both parts political action and reaction, as well as a touching and insightfully-drawn teen love story.
Every book I read of David's gets better and better. They are all surprising and cute and totally worth reading. One part, I admit isn't really suitable for "younger" readers, but the overall message of this book is something all readers no matter what age should be taught. It teaches us to accept others, no matter their religion, skin color, or which gender they find attractive. We are all humans, who live on this earth, and we need to learn to accept people for who they are. I think this message is heavily discussed in this book. You should read it at one point in time, if you haven't already.
Silence is silver, but Books are golden...
