Rainbow Boys - Alex Sánchez
So this book is the polar opposite of a 2,000+ year old treatise on waging wars, ha ha. It's a well done YA novel about three high school age young men who are all grappling with their sexuality. I discovered this book in a fortuitous library catalog search and I am go glad I did! I found the characters engaging and the writing style was compelling - this was a fast read that covered a lot of ground. I really liked the characters, and I liked how the author was able to have three situations that young people can really relate to and show how many individuals react to challenges. Apparently there are two sequels, so maybe next year I can use them for the Color-Coded Reading Challenge :) Recommended.
