Book Quote(s)- Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

Hi, guys! As you can make out from my review of David Levithan's Two Boys Kissing, I absolutely loved, loved, loved the book. It was my first five stars read of 2014. It's a book that's going to stay with me forever and even though every word the author has written means something to me, I'm really desperate to share a part of the book with you that's had an impact on me. I won't share the whole part that I've highlighted of course, but just a few lines to tease you enough. 

So, as part of this time's Book Quotes post, here's what I have for you- 

Two Boys Kissing

Ryan asks Avery about the pink hair. 

"I know, strange color choice, right? For a boy born as a girl who wants to be seen as a a boy. But think about it- it just shows how arbitrary gender is. Are girls any more pink than boys? Are boys any more blue than girls? It's something that has been sold to us, mostly so other things can be sold to us. My hair can be pink because I'm a boy. Yours can be blue because you're a girl. If you free yourself from all the stupid arbitrary shit, that society controls us with, you feel more free, and if you feel more free, you can be happier." 

"My hair's blue because I like blue," Ryan says. 

"And mine is pink because I like pink. And I totally didn't mean to lecture you. It just makes me mad. All the stupid arbitrary shit." 

"It makes you want to overthrow the world." 

"On a daily basis." 

Inspiring, right? Now all I ask of you is to go read the book.

  2. I feel like one of "those" people because I'm totally judging on a guy having a pink hair. Uhm...Maybe I do need to read this book and understand Avery's personality.
