Wide Awake
In the not-too-impossible-to-imagine future, a gay Jewish man has been elected president of the United States. Until the governor of one state decides that some election results in his state are invalid, awarding crucial votes to the other candidate, and his fellow party member.

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist
It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who’s just walked in to his band’s show- with a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City–and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.

Marley’s Ghost

Ben is dealing with just about the hardest thing you can think of- his girlfriend Marly has died. When Marly and several other ghosts come back to haunt him on Valentine’s Day, Ben takes a painful journey through Valentine’s Days past, present, and future, and is forced to acknowledge that his current state of agony is not only distancing him from his friends but dishonoring the memory of Marly.

Are We There Yet?
Sixteen-year-old Elijah and his 23-year-old brother, Danny, share exactly two things: their parents. To repair this disastrous relationship, their parents trick the fractious siblings into taking a trip together to Italy. In Europe, things are going predictably bad until an attractive woman gets into the mix.

Realm of Possibility
Through a series of poems, readers meet a group of friends and acquaintances, reflecting a diverse range of sexuality, race and social standing.

Boy Meets Boy
This is the story of Paul, a sophomore at a high school like no other: The cheerleaders ride Harleys, the homecoming queen used to be a guy named Daryl (she now prefers Infinite Darlene and is also the star quarterback), and the gay-straight alliance was formed to help the straight kids learn how to dance.
