Levithan's Newest Read May Be A Bust
According to reviews, David Levithan (beloved LGBT author of Boy Meets Boy, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist) didn't exactly knock it out of the park with his latest novel, Every You, Every Me, released in September 2011. Paired with capturing photographs by Jonathan Farmer, Levithan's book tells of a struggling teen named Evan who fears someone is stalking him. Evan begins to receive a series of pictures, several of which feature himself, by an unknown mailer. Throughout the story, Evan tries to unravel the mystery of the photographs and discovers some secrets he didn't want to know.
Readers call Levithan's new book boring and complicated. While it starts strong, several reviews feel it falls apart after the first few pages. Perhaps readers wouldn't be as harsh if not for Levithan's fantastic streak of great novels. Read the BookSmugglers review.
