To the Boys Who Wear Pink by Revan Badingham III - Guest Blogger Book Review


Synopsis

"We are the boys who wear pink. We eat trauma for breakfast, we puke it out to fit into our skinny jeans and leather jackets."

High school reunions were always a bitch. Especially if you're one of the boys invited to Ryan's party. Do you live it up with King and the Trouble Twins? Are you still cool enough to chug beer with basketball jocks Si and Badger? Or do you cower in the corner with mild-mannered Reyes and Angelo, the social outcast?

Also, who hired the stripper?

The night is endless. Watch twenty-four stories tangle as the boys reconnect, fight, reminisce, fall in love, fall out of love, get drunk, get high, get laid, and deal with a shared tragedy in their past.

Jennifer's Review
To the Boys Who Wear Pink is a good book, and I liked reading it. 
It’s about a group of boys who are gay and bisexual. They are all friends who like each other, and each boy tells his story throughout the book. 
Lots of partying, kissing, talking, enjoying each other's company, drinking, and remembering a good friend of theirs who passed away years after they all graduated from high school. 
I give this book 2 stars (not really my cup of tea). If you enjoy LGBT fiction, read this book.
