"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan.

The Difference Between You and Me

This book is hilarious and heartbreaking and hopeful all at the same time.  Definitely a great edition to any contemporary YA collection.  This looks at a GLBT relationship in a refreshingly realistic way.  The writing is really interesting, as it switches perspectives and style with each chapter.  Some people may find that distracting, but I love this kind of detail; it's really giving me a clear view of each main character!  I really suggest everyone check this out!
