Description

An exhilarating and emotional LGBTQ story about the growing relationship between two teen boys, told through the letters written to one another. For fans of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe and I’ll Give You the Sun.

Thrown together by a zealous English teacher's classroom-mailbox assignment, notorious scrapper, Adam "Kurl" Kurlansky, and Jonathan Hopkirk, a flamboyant Walt Whitman wannabe, have to write an old-fashioned letter to each other every week. 

Kurl is a senior, an ex-high school football player, held back a year, while Jo is a nerdy, out tenth grader with a penchant for vintage clothes and a deep love for poetry. They are an unlikely pair, but with each letter, the two begin to develop a friendship that grows into love. But with homophobia, bullying, and familial abuse, Jonathan and Kurl must struggle to overcome their conflicts and hold onto their relationship, and each other.

One of CBC’s 29 Canadian Kids Books & YA to Look For in Spring 2019

"This exploration of self and sexuality is sure to be quickly embraced by fans of Love, Simon, They Both Die at the End and The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue.” (Siân Gaetano, Shelf Awareness, editor [Children's and YA])

"The title of this book is incredibly fitting. Jonathan and Kurl are two complex and fascinating characters, and they instantly drew me into the world created by their letters and their love. It's an astonishing romance and character study that also happens to be full of gorgeous writing." (Robin Talley, author of Lies We Tell Ourselves and Pulp)

“This is an absolutely extraordinary work of fiction that proves the epistolary novel is an art form. Kurl and Jo are characters to die for, emotionally compelling and empathetic.... [This novel] is not to be missed.” (Booklist, starred review)

I've read this book before and really liked it. But the guy who voices Jonathan makes me want to bash my head against a wall. Adam sounds fine, the only issue is the other one. Would recommend the physical book - not the audiobook.

my heart

this was so wonderful, it hurt my heart with cuteness and with pain.
its presentation as letters the entire time was very interesting as well, made it feel like it was going by very fast
