Go To

Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan (2013) is a book about a whole bunch of gay teenage boys. Harry and Craig, who are kissing for over 24 hours to set a World Record. Ryan and Avery, a budding couple with dyed hair. Neil and Peter, who've been together for a year. Cooper, who is single and depressed. Tariq, who is single and joyful.


  • Good Parents: Harry and Avery's parents are both incredibly supportive. Ryan, Craig, and Neil's parents are variously accepting, but not really supportive. Cooper's parents are... not.
  • Twofer Token Minority: The book has a reasonably diverse group of characters, considering they're all gay teenage boys from the same area. Neil is Korean, Tariq is black, Harry is presumably Latino, and Avery is trans.
  • Very Loosely Based on a True Story: Harry and Craig's Guinness World Record setting kiss is based off Matty Daley and Bobby Canciello's World Record kiss in 2010.
